As a student of New Orleans Jazz, I've lived and breathed New Orleans music from the time I was a freshman at Tulane. One of the a quintessential New Orleans institutions, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, discovered new out-of-town admirers after Hurricane Katrina, and it brought many of them along for a concert on Saturday night at Carnegie Hall to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Special guests included with special guests Allen Toussaint, Blind Boys of Alabama, Del McCoury Band, Ed Helms, GIVERS, Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, My Morning Jacket, Steve Earle, Tao Seeger, Trey McIntyre Project, Trombone Shorty, yasiin bey (FKA Mos Def). Thank you Bowery Presents for making this possible!
