Eric Lindell, rolling down the streets of New Orleans in mule cart, gives a soulful blues-rock reading of "Bayou Country," a song he attributes to Luther Kent and Duke Bardwell. Bardwell, of Baton Rouge and Elvis' one-time bass player, was Kent's cousin. Kent's band Cold Grits recorded the song in 1970. For more on the convoluted history of Cold Grits, go here.
So named because bloody marys helped generate the idea, Bloody Sunday Sessions is "a web-based video series of stripped down musical performances occurring in the back of the iconic New Orleans’ mule-drawn carriages."
Here's an audio-only version of Cold Grits' version of "Bayou Country".
