Ark: Sonny Landreth

Veteran singer-songwriter and slide guitar virtuoso from Louisiana whom Eric Clapton calls "the most underestimated musician on the planet." The first white member of the late zydeco king Clifton Chenier's Red Hot Louisiana Band, Landreth has played with everyone from John Hiatt and Jimmie Dale Gilmore to John Mayall and Junior Wells. His songs--whose music blends Cajun, swamp rock, and Mississippi roadhouse blues and whose lyrical sensibility draws inspiration equally from William Faulkner and Robert Johnson-- are rooted in a feeling for the sights, sounds, and flavors of life in southwest Louisiana. $30.
