Families in Music


November 22nd, 2006 ~ The family that plays together stays together, and this week on American Routes we have a couple of them. First up, it's 12 and Shorty, better known as James and Troy Andrews, brothers and horn players with a long New Orleans musical lineage. Rockers and brothers Cody and Willy Braun, of Reckless Kelly, and their father Muzzie share their memories of being in a cowboy family band.
