Dancing to New Orleans

DIRECTED BY - Michael Murphy

More than any other place, Louisiana--and in particular New Orleans--has been responsible for the development of one of the most rich and diverse musical legacies in America. From country to R&B, Zydeco to blues, Cajun to jazz, DANCING TO NEW ORLEANS examines how the region's people, land, and culture impacted Louisiana's unique musical heritage and nurtured completely new sounds like Dixieland jazz and Hank Williams' lonesome country blues. Includes interviews with and live performances from the contemporary artists and musicians who continue to preserve this musical legacy: Buckwheat Zydeco, BeauSoleil, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Big Jack Johnson, the Neville Brothers, and many more.
