Explores the music of the region from the House of the Rising Sun to gator hunting with Amos Moses (the one-armed Cajun backwoodsman created by country songwriter Jerry Reed) to Bo Diddley, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan and Creedence Clearwater Revival to unsung heroes of the Bayou like folklorists Mina Monroe and Alan Lomax. Part social history, part epic travelogue and partly a lament for a way of life that has now all but disappeared, Bayou Underground is the gripping story of American music's forgotten childhood and the parentage it barely even knows about.
