Check out WWOZ’s Community Stage

February 25, 2011

If you’re in New Orleans’ French Quarter March 5, check out the debut of the WWOZ Community Stage at the French Market. The community radio station describes the venue as a place for “local street musicians… to earn exposure and tips.” The stage will be in tent at the Farmers Market flagpole, between Ursuline and Governor Nicholls streets, marked by  banners.

Playing from 2:00 to 2:45 will be blues guitarist John T. Lewis, whom we featured in Crescent City Blues, along with harmonica player J.D. Hill. Here’s a video we made of Lewis and Hill playing together in Hill’s living room last fall. (Scroll to the bottom of the page.)

The March 5 schedule is here. More on the Community Stage here.
