Special | 56m 46s Video has closed captioning.

Ohio boasts a rich musical heritage that covers every type of the American roots music genre - from folk, bluegrass, blues and Cajun to jug band, ragtime, klezmer and traditional New Orleans-style jazz. But many Ohioans don’t know much about the music or the musicians who play it. To bring more attention to this creative Ohio asset, we highlight the unique roots musicians from around the state.
