Walking up to Lafayette Square there's blues guitar playing, beer drinking and as a cool fall breeze polishes your face it's inherently evident where the barbeque is coming from. It's that time of the year... the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival!
In commemoration, we bring you an hour-long set of blues, featuring players like slide virtuoso Sonny Landreth, rabble-rousers King James and the Special Men, roots rockers The Iguanas and many others. We also meet up with Scott Aiges, director of programs, marketing and communications at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation to talk about this year's Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival, taking place October 18th through the 20th. On the flipside of the music, it features a spread of regional style barbeque and other cookin' ranging from St. Louis to Texas. See who's playing here.
