Sonny Landreth - Words and Music - 2012

by Claudia Marshall

Sonny Landreth is a slide guitar wizard from southern Louisiana who pours out riffs in a gorgeous stream that sounds almost effortless. His first-ever instrumental album, Elemental Journey, is a joyous exploration of blues, country, reggae, strings and zydeco, and it recently brought Sonny in for a visit. He's soft-spoken, yes, but man that guitar can really wail. Hear for yourself...
