Sunshine by the Stars: Celebrating Louisiana Music Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Sun, Jul 27, 2014 -- 1:00 PM

Music is one of those things that defines us and virtually every great community in America has a song that becomes its anthem -- "New York, New York," "Sweet Home Chicago," "Georgia On My Mind," "Deep in the Heart of Texas," -- but not all of them mention the city or state by name - some reflect a special state of mind. "You Are My Sunshine" is the song in Louisiana that ties a rich musical history and diverse culture together. Harry Connick, Jr. takes us on a musical journey of Louisiana music through the lyrics of this classic song. Some of the featured artists in this 60-minute HD-special are: Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jerry Lee Lewis performing at his house in Memphis, Blues legend Buddy Guy playing at his club in Chicago, Cajun singer/songwriter Zachary Richard singing in French at this house in Acadiana, the Rebirth Brass Band marching through the Lafayette Cemetery No. 2, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue performing on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, country star Tim McGraw leading his audience in a spirited rendition of the song at his concert at the New Orleans Arena, a gospel version by The Zion Harmonizers at the St. James AME Church in New Orleans, Mickey Gilley at his theater in Branson, Irma Thomas, Buckwheat Zydeco and Grammy winners Wynton and Branford Marsalis joined with their dad Ellis and brother Jason for a unique jazz version. Harry Connick, Jr. closes the show with his band second-lining through the French Quarter. This one-hour HD music special is a perfect program for PBS stations around the country as a part of their holiday program schedule!
