PROFESSOR LONGHAIR

RUGGED & FUNKY

Professor Longhair: Rugged & Funky takes you beyond the myths of unsung musical genius, Professor Longhair, who like so many musicians of his time, never got his due. Rugged & Funky not only honors his musical prowess and playful personality but paints a picture of life in New Orleans through the never before seen interviews of late musical greats Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Henry Butler and more.

"The Originator of Funk and Rock N Roll." - Dr John

"As important as any of the composers dating back 500 years." - Allen Toussaint

"Professor Longhair originated one of the classic styles of Rock N Roll piano playing." - Rolling Stone Magazine
