Hallows and Harvest: American Routes Halloween Special

Oct 24, 2017

It's Halloween... a time of spirit and flesh, tricks and treats. We'll hear from Houma Indian carver and instrument-maker, Ivy Billiot, about rougarou— or werewolves — and the spirit world. Then Bentonia bluesman Jimmy "Duck" Holmes tells us about the devil in daily life. Also songs about murder and mayhem, and beings from beyond the stars...  and beyond the grave. Plus music from Dr. John and Memphis Minnie, Hank Williams and Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
