Episode 4 : The Wetland Blues

September 3, 2015



Would you decide your future by throwing darts at a map? Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes did, when his darts landed on New Orleans. He got a job on a wild wetlands preserve. But once he heard the sound of Zydeco, it hit him like a lightening bolt, and he just had to start playing blues on an accordion. It’s a fascinating story about unique ecosystems, cultures blending, and the transformative power of music. Join us and be amazed.
