As New Orleanians and, this time, the world, battle another disaster, viewers have the opportunity to screen One Note At A Time from home on August 29 and 30 in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the federal flood.
The film was filmed over the course of four years and homage to the musicians who courageously returned to New Orleans after the devastation. Compelled to come back and determined to resuscitate the music scene, this is their story, told in their own words. It is also the story of the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic that evolved into the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Fund, whose mission is to keep New Orleans’ culture ALIVE by providing social services and outreach.
Tickets are $9.99 and 10% of proceeds will go towards the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic and Assistance Foundation.
WWOZ listeners are also invited to join the free Q&A session on Sunday, August 30 at 2pm (CT) with filmmaker Renee Edwards, Bethany Bultman of New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, Chip Wilson, Craig Klein of Bonerama, and Shelton "Shakespear" Alexander, Felice Guimont, Mama Jamilah Peters-Muhammad, DJ Lil' Koko Pieroudis of JAZZFm, London.
