12.20 A Final Farewell to Storyville @ The Old U.S. Mint
WEDNESDAY, December 20, 7:30pm (New Orleans):
Throughout this year, several Clarinet Road events commemorated the centenary of the closing of the Storyville red-light district. Though often credited as the place where New Orleans musicians started making their music in a different way, my programs have relied less on that mythology, and more on simply honoring early pioneers of New Orleans music, playing their songs and exploring the city’s soundscape a century ago. The Louisiana Museum Foundation hosts at the Old U.S. Mint, and if you can’t be in New Orleans, we will be streaming the concert. More on that soon!
Place: Old U.S. Mint, 400 Esplanade Ave. New Orleans, LA 70116
Date & Time: WEDNESDAY, 20 Dec, 2017, 7:30pm
Line-Up: Evan Christopher (clarinet) Brian Seeger (guitar), Roland Guerin (bass) & Shannon Powell (drums)
