Thread Name: Lyr Req: Fannin Street (Leadbelly)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Leadbelly's Fanin Street
Hear (and download) "Fannin Street," sung by Leadbelly, here: Louisiana Voices

"Fannin Street" is given as an example of North Louisiana blues. Leadbelly picks it out on a 12-string.
Ten other good examples of Louisiana music, including an old Clifton Chenier and the Delta song Where there's a will, sung by Ernie K. Doe.
