One Note at a Time

“If the musicians ain’t got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?” Dr John. One Note At A Time is set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans, where the music stopped in 2005 when one of the most destructive hurricanes in American history struck. The flood defences failed, flooding the Crescent City for weeks. Lives were lost and lives were shattered. Many displaced musicians felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again. This is the story of some who made it back, told in their own words, with those who fought alongside to resuscitate the music scene.
