New Orleans musician Sunpie Barnes divides his time between playing accordion with his band, the Louisiana Sunspots, and New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, where he's a park ranger. In this video, we get a taste of the mix of blues, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Louisiana music that he plays, as well as the natural settings that inspire him.
