Jazz Fest Blog 2015

The fourth year of Jazz Fest trips was a mixed bag weatherwise, always warm but with some stormy weather for the first half. Once that cleared out it was perfect Gulf Coast springtime weather. The music at Jazz Fest as usual was spectacular, full of old friends and astounding new discoveries, and the evening activities were varied and really good as well. Don't forget the photo and video pages in the Road Trips section of the website. They are much improved from years past. In the blog pages below you'll find background and performances for the artists we heard and the places we visited and a lot of music and cultural history linked in, too. As always, if find yourself drawn to any of these wonderful New Orleans musicians, please support them!  Buy their recordings. And if they are ever in town, come with us to enjoy them in person! Because ... Live Music Is Better!
