I live (1/2) time in Louisiana, but it's the NW part of the state (Bossier City) which really seems more like east Texas than traditional Louisiana. 1/2 the week I work in Texas, the other 1/2 I'm hanging out in LA with the wifey unit.

That reminds me of a song by Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown:

"I was born in Louisiana and raised on the Texas side..."

The Cox family lives about 20 miles or so from my place in Bossier City. They have some of their music in the movie O' Brother, where art thou?

Harry loves his home town of New Orleans. He has worked hard to help people after Katrina.

One my local muscians, Eric Burden from Newcastle, wrote a fantastic song about New Orleans and I never dreamed that I would live close by one day.

They did "I Am Weary, Let Me Rest".

There is nothing like family harmony -- The Cox Family, The Whites, The Judds, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks just to name a few.

I was shocked and amazed the first time I heard this accordion player, all I had heard before that was that guy on Lawrence Welk's show:

I like their version, but the song goes way back before those lads:

The House of the Rising Sun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
Like many classic folk ballads, the authorship of "The House of the Rising Sun" is unknown. ....

Alan Price of The Animals has claimed that the song was originally a sixteenth-century English folk song about a Soho brothel, and that English emigrants took the song to America where it was adapted to its later New Orleans setting.[1]

The oldest known existing recording is by Appalachian artists Clarence Ashley and Gwen Foster and was made in 1933. ...

The song might have been lost to obscurity had it not been collected by folklorist Alan Lomax, who, along with his father, was a curator of the Archive of American Folk Song for the Library of Congress. On an expedition with his wife to eastern Kentucky Lomax set up his recording equipment in Middlesborough, Kentucky in the house of a singer and activist called Tilman Cadle. On September 15, 1937 he recorded a performance by Georgia Turner, the 16 year-old daughter of a local miner. He called it "The Risin' Sun Blues."

Eric Burden in video of the Animals doing House of the Rising Son looks like a 15 year old boy with 40 year old voice.

There is nothing like brass, they can break your heart:
