Legendary blues man Keb Mo, veteran soul singers Clarence Carter and Lattimore, blues harmonica ace Sugar Blue, guitar shredder Larry Burton and Baton Rouge's Grammy-winning blues artist Chris Thomas King are some of the great acts who will appear at the seventh annual Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival.
Lafayette guitar ace Li'l Buck Sinegal, Austin-based blues belter Miss Lavelle White, and Mississippi-by-way-of-Chicago soul man Otis Clay (backed by the Memphis-based Bo-Keys) also are on the bill. New Orleans' own Johnny Sansone, Little Freddie King, Ernie Vincent and J. Monque'D will perform as well.
And making his first appearance at the event is New Orleans-based blues troubadour Spencer Bohren. Returning to New Orleans after a long absence is blues stalwart Ironing Board Sam.
The seventh annual Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival, presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, celebrates Southern soul with the best in local and international blues and R&B talent, plus the greatest assemblage of home-style barbecue to be found in New Orleans. It takes place Oct. 12-14 at New Orleans' Lafayette Square Park. Admission is free!
