In this week's episode we celebrate summertime and getting out there to see some live music. Featuring performances from a collection of local artists including Theresa Andersson, Treme Brass Band, Susan Cowsill, The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker and Big Sam, Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse Revue, and Dirty Dozen Band. These live recordings take you smack into the crowd, complete with hoots and hollers. And if you listen closely, you can just about smell the pot of jambalaya brewing.
We also explore the bond of ‘Southerness’ with Libra Lagrone from the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Bethany Lemanski of Wednesdays on the Point tells us the secret to the best tasting crawfish in town!
