Nick Spitzer’s excellent roots music program, American Routes, is featuring Cedric Watson this week, Aug. 10-17, 2011.  It’s available at public radio stations nationwide, but there’s a “Listen” button on the page.  Watson has plunged headlong into the world of Creole music, and has done more than anyone in the past few years to bring it back from the brink of extinction.  Watson got his start with the Pine Leaf Boys.  And he’s got a new album, Le Soleil Est Leve (The sun is rising), with his band Bijou Creole.  Listen to it on his web site.
