Sonny Landreth – Zydeco Shuffle

Singer songwriter guitarist Sonny Landreth brings together blues, jazz, Cajun, zydeco, and rock music, creating a style thattwo solo’s increasingly appealing to a wide array of listeners. The Mississippi-born recording artist employs a slide technique praised by critics from Guitar Player magazine to the Vancouver Sun. Each of Landreth’s solo albums is woven from the various musical styles he picked up in southern Louisiana, his home since the age of two. His ability to meld these loosely associated deep South genres has earned him a broad following, and, with twenty years as a professional musician, his résumé packs important contacts. He has worked with the likes of John Hiatt, Mark Knopfler, and the late king of zydeco, Clifton Chenier and his Red Hot Louisiana Band.
