NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BANJO/GUITARIST DANNY BARKER & AMERICAN ROUTES LIVE WITH DETROIT BROOKS AND HIS SYNCOPATED PERCOLATORS
New Orleans musician and raconteur Danny Barker was a banjo and guitar heroâ€”a major player in New York jazz who never forgot his French Creole roots in song and style. We look back on Danny’s career, his life with wife and collaborator, the singer Blue Lu Barker, and his influence sustaining culture in the Crescent City. Then, current day guitar and banjo man, Detroit Brooks pays tribute to the Barker legacy with his band the Syncopated Percolators live at the New Orleans Jazz Museum.
