Re: "American Epic": Documentary on Joe Falcon, Cleoma Falcon and the Breaux Freres

Even if you don't watch TV, it's available on DVD. The series features several "first families" of recorded music including country music, Hawaiian music, blues, tejano and Cajun. The Falcon and Breauxs were selected. While their segment in the episode is short and doesn't encompass their whole life, you'll get a first class film experience documenting a small snippet of their lives and a couple of songs.

For a full project on their lives and music, you'll have to wait for an upcoming project which I hope to unveil sometime later this year. :D Cheers!
