Blues & BBQ

October 13, 2009

If you’re anywhere near New Orleans this weekend (sadly, we won’t be), don’t miss The Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival, a two-day event in Lafayette Square Park (580 St. Charles Ave.) sponsored by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. This is a chance to catch free—yes, free—performances by the likes of Buddy Guy and Irma Thomas.

You also might catch musicians you’ve never heard of—talents such as Ernie Vincent, a guitar powerhouse who is better known among R&B record collectors in England than he is in the United States. Here’s a cut from Vincent’s Grammy-nominated 2009 CD Bayou Road Blues, an album of acoustic Louisiana Delta blues. Just click the “play” button on the widget below.
