Welcome back to Festival Circuit: New Orleans. In episode 3, we’re going to jazz fest! We’ll look at how the festival started, hear from interviewees about standout performances, talk about the evolution of the festival itself, and of course, talk a bit about jazz fest food.
We spend some time in the Gospel Tent, dance with Mardi Gras Indians, and look at the explosive growth of the festival over the past 20 years. And of course, there’s plenty of music.
This would have been the 51st jazz fest, and we all wish we could have been there. But this tribute to the festival and to New Orleans music helps us all feel a little more connected to live music and to this event that is truly one of a kind.
