This unique Blu-Ray sees Laurie depart the sounds of New Orleans as he follows the trajectory of the blues upstream and into the American heartland. It includes songs dating back to early pioneers such as Jelly Roll Morton (I Hate A Man Like You) to more recent artists such as Dr. John (Wild Honey) and Alan Price of The Animals (Changes).
Hugh said of the set list I have resolved to forge on, deeper into the forest of American music that has enchanted me since I was a small boy, and the further I go, the more bewitched I become – both by the songs and by the people I have been lucky enough to play them with.
