Baton Rouge holds a unique place in the history of modern music, being the birthplace for a particular blues sub-genre known as 'swamp blues.' Down-tempo yet rhythmic, the swamp blues scene spawned such legendary musicians as Slim Harpo, Lonesome Sundown, Lazy Lester and others. While some today might not recognize these names, their musical influence carried across the pond, as British rock bands like The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds began covering swamp blues songs. Baton Rouge continues to be influential in the music scene today, being a hotspot for zydeco, blues, and rap, among other styles.
