Please check out the new blog Barry Yeoman started about our Louisiana blues project:

We are currently in the middle of producing two one-hour documentaries on Southern blues artists. This blog documents some of our adventures on the way to researching the one based in Louisiana.

I apologize for not posting more frequently. This has become more of an archive than a blog. I hope that is OK.

The Civil War podcast for the NC Arts Council is finished but they have not posted it yet. I will post an update here when that happens.

Currently Barry Y and I are collaborating on two different one-hour documentaries on the blues. One is a commission from a national magazine; the other is funded, in part, by a generous grant from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. These will both be done by the first and second quarters of 2010. Again, when they air I will post an update! We will be spending a lot of time in New Orleans for our first round of interviews in October. When we get back I will create a blog for the Louisiana project so you can keep up with our progress and by early next year we should have a full-blown website for the New Orleans blues doc.

Thanks for checking in...

New Pieces on

Here are a few more collaborations with Barry Yeoman. At the links below you will find four slideshows we did together. They complement an article Barry wrote for O, The Oprah Magazine. He also did the reporting and photography for the slideshows. I produced/edited the audio and mixed the sound track. Barry created the slideshows with Soundslides.

The music for the third piece is from the band Sequoya.

Life as a freelancer

Here is something I have done recently in collaboration with Barry Yeoman:

Captain Luke
