In “Forever My Love”, Louisiana filmmaker Pat Mire takes us on an unforgettable journey into the history and soul of Cajun roots music. The film features guitarist Gerry McGee, who has played with Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton, Kris Kristofferson, Barbra Streisand and many other famous entertainers. Gerry is the son of the late legendary fiddler Dennis McGee, who has been called “the father of contemporary Cajun music.”
Gerry and Pat roam the countryside in a 1976 convertible Cadillac, stopping along the way to play music with many of Dennis’ former students, including Cajun legends Michael Doucet, Zachary Richard, Steve Riley, D.L. Menard, famed slide guitarist Sonny Landreth and too many others to name.
