S3 Ep 1 The Tale of Stackalee

In This Episode

As a man, the lowlife pimp and murderer Lee Shelton has all but sunk into obscurity. However, as raised up by more than a century of popular culture, the righteous killer Stagger Lee has become an icon to generations, who see in the folk character defiance of authority, pride of self, and strength in the face of adversity.

In this episode we hear Richard Dunham take on this larger-than-life figure. Stackalee or Stagger Lee is filled with the amazing blues soundscape from Lionel Young, Roy Hightower, and Otis Taylor.

Be sure to check out EP 2 – a concert by Lionel Young, Roy Hightower, and Otis Taylor recorded live directly following the audio drama Stackalee.
