Small Town Hipsters: Nancy Wilson & Dickie Landry


February 7th, 2007 ~ This week we'll hear from folks that started in small towns and made it big, in jazz, blues, country and more. Jazz singer Nancy Wilson called Chillicothe, Ohio home before moving on to become one of the hippest vocalists around. Lafayette, Louisiana is home base for musical polymath Dickie Landry. The saxophone player was a founding member of the Phillip Glass ensemble, works with the swamp pop ensemble Lil' Band O' Gold, and continues his own avant-garde musical experiments.
