Saturday Series Celebrates Big Easy
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation is partnering with the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau and others to create a new summer concert series, "Saturdays in the Park."
The concerts, which will be held Saturday afternoons from Aug. 11-Sept. 8, are intended both to stimulate tourism and to serve as “welcome home” parties for new and newly returned New Orleans residents.
The concerts will take place in Washington Square Park, in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, from 4-6 p.m. These events will be free and open to the public.
The schedule of performers is as follows:
Aug. 11 The Charmaine Neville Band
Aug. 18 Susan Cowsill
Aug. 25 Gal Holiday & the Honky Tonk Revue
Sept. 1 Linnzi Zaorski & Delta Royale
Sept. 8 The Pfister Sisters
