This week, Music Inside Out features Louisiana musicians telling stories of their experiences around the world.

Alex McMurray, Shannon Powell, the Pfister Sisters and Luke Winslow King couldn’t sound more different on stage. But they’re all road-tested, having talked, played, sung or cooked their way out of tight spots in Nashville, Germany, Greece and Japan.

Jon Cleary was born and raised in Britain, but didn’t find the right groove until he reached New Orleans. His experience adds a whole new layer to the concept of “Home and Away.”

So count up your frequent flyer miles and take off with host, Gwen Thompkins. She’ll let you have the aisle seat.
