December 8th, 2004 ~ American Routes shows that two heads, voices, guitars, banjos, or horns can be better than one. Guests include the venerable Piedmont blues pair Cephas and Wiggins, and New Orleans collaborators Henry Butler and Corey Harris. We'll also hear great singing and composing duos: Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Louis Prima and Keely Smith, Lester Young and Oscar Peterson, and Lennon and McCartney.
