Music and New Orleans ~ they are woven together in my mind. Here is another chance to enjoy amazing musicians! The Second Annual Crescent City Blues Festival will take place on Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th. Best of all...... it is FREE!
Sooooo many great singers and bands will be playing on two stages. Do you remember Bryan Lee ~ the blind guitarist featured at Old Absinthe House for several years? He will perform! Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Tab Benoit, Robert Belfour, Marva Wright, Papa Grows Funk, Tinsley Ellis, Bobby "Blue" Bland to name a few who will be singing for you.
There will also be a "Walk the Beat" 5K walk/run to support the New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation for all you healthy people. ha! Entry fee is $20 in advance or $25 on site.
