Read about the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival 2015

Crescent-City-Blues-And-BBQ-FestThe 10th annual Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival will return to Lafayette Square Park in New Orleans LA on October 16-18, 2015.

I was at the 2014 event and it was terrific.  As well as a great music line-up celebrating the soul of the South, other positives included free admission, constant performances (two stages at either end of the park alternating), an arts market, handy location in the city’s downtown, and last but no way least, a smorgasbord of barbeque and other delicious smoked treats.

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, which organises the event, has announced the following artists are performing in 2015:

Ruthie Foster
Denise LaSalle
Swamp Dogg
Lurrie Bell
Jarekus Singleton
Kenny Neal
Mr. Sipp, “The Mississippi Blues Man”
Little Freddie King
Walter “Wolfman” Washington
An Excello Records reunion featuring: Lazy Lester, Carol Fran, Classie Ballou and Jockey Etienne, plus Li’l Buck Sinegal and Lee Allen Zeno

More performers will follow.  Meanwhile, you can check out the details of my 2014 experience for days one, two and three.
