Shreveport Sounds

Dan and Paul Garner
Dan Garner penned a chapter entitled The Legend of Old Blue Goose in the new book Shreveport Sounds in Black and White (American Made Music). It was published last month by the University Press of Mississippi and edited by Kip Lornell and Tracey E.W. Laird.

What, musically, is the "Shreveport Sound?" A big mix up of country, blues, R&B, rockabilly, and rock. RRBJ would add folk and bluegrass in there seeing as Leadbelly was from these parts as is The Cox Family. Can't think of a better example of SB Land sounds than Garner's new collection, The Second Album.

Captured in front of the black wall outside of artspace, just up from Tipitina's is Garner along with his son Paul.
