Sonny Landreth, the lean Mississippi native who grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, had already been playing horn for three years when hegot his hands on his first six-string and fell deeply in love. Slide guitar spoke to Landreth immediately. Landreth has continued to develop his vision and his musical voice, growing increasingly original and diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz into increasingly category-blurring musical excursions like Bound By the Blues. Cindy Cashdollar’s unerring ability to perfectly complement a song or step out with a tasteful, imaginative, and exciting solo – and to do it in so many musical genres – has made her one of the most in-demand musicians on the American roots music scene.
