This week on New Orleans All The Way Live, we celebrate summertime in New Orleans. The sun is shining and it is time to get outdoors and see some live music. Wednesdays On The Point is a fantastic series of outdoor music performances set amidst the beautiful sights of Algiers Point. To get you in the groove, we feature performances from a collection of amazing local artists at this festival series, including Theresa Andersson, Treme Brass Band, Susan Cowsill, The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker and Big Sam, Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse Revue, and Dirty Dozen Brass Band. These live recordings take you to the middle of the crowd, complete with hoots and hollers. And if you listen closely, you can almost smell the pot of jambalaya brewing.
In addition to the music, Libra Lagrone from the Ogden Museum of Southern Art talks with us about the special bond of ‘Southernness.’ We are a special community down here in the South and she explains exactly what that means. And of course you know we didn’t forget about the food! Bethany Lemanski of Wednesdays on the Point tells us the secret to the best tasting crawfish in town. You’ll never want to stay in on a Wednesday night again. But really, with regular events like these to coax you out, there’s no reason not to get out and enjoy New Orleans!
