 Vignette: Southern

WDET producer Laura Herberg and photographer Amy Sacka welcome us to John’s Carpet House, a weekly grassroots music jam on the east side of Detroit. Conversations with a kaleidoscope of personalities and dynamic black and white photos of blues artists, barbecue, and dancing grandmas, tell the story of the Carpet House, where keeping the peace is supreme and familial, jovial fun is inevitable.

In this feature from 2014, Herberg begins by describing the southern feels and traditions permeating the weekly gathering.
