Meet the Creole cowboys of Louisiana on American Routes

Geno Delafose

Zydeco Crossroads contributor Nick Spitzer looks at the lifestyle of Creole cowboys on this segment from American Routes.

We hear Boozoo Chavis telling stories about catching and taming wild horses along the Gulf Coast, while Joe Fontenot explains the history of the popular trail rides, a tradition that grew from 500 riders in 1986 to 5000 riders at the time of recording. Geno Delafose, one of the best-known cowboys / zydeco musicians today, talks about life on the ranch and the songs that the lifestyle has inspired.

Listen to the segment below.
