Lil_Buck_coverLafayette guitar legend Lil’ Buck Sinegal is the focus of an extended cover story on the Lafayette blues-music scene in the latest issue of Living Blues magazine.

Writer Scott M. Bock and photographer Gene Tomko spent weeks in the Hub City interviewing Sinegal and a host of other musicians about the evolving styles and blurring lines of blues and its influence on zydeco, swamp pop and other genres indigenous to South Louisiana. The multi-part article also explores the dance hall and house-party musical cultures and provides an insightful history of J.D. Miller’s famed Crowley recording studio and the stable of Excello Records artists who recorded there some half century ago.

Unfortunately, the story evidently isn’t available online — only a summary is provided at the magazine’s website — but the issue can be ordered at
