August 1 – Julio and Cesar

Originally from Guatemala, Julio and Cesar Herrera have been in New Orleans for over 30 years.  They describe their music as constantly evolving, attributing this, in part, to their exposure from an early age to many cultures. For more information visit www.julioandcesar.com.

 

August 8 – The New Orleans Guitar Quartet

Acoustic virtuoso Jimmy Robinson, finger style guitar master John Rankin, “guitarpist” Phil DeGruy with his 17 string “Guitarp”, blues master Cranston Clements join forces to form the New Orleans Guitar Quartet, a synthesis of stringed virtuosity.

 

August 15 – Little Freddie King

The cousin of Lightnin' Hopkins, King learned guitar from his father, but in 1954 moved to New Orleans at the age of 14. He recorded the first electric blues album in New Orleans with Harmonica Williams in 1969. In 1976, King undertook a European tour alongside Bo Diddley and John Lee Hooker.

 

August 22 – Bobby Cure and The Poppa Stoppas

Join us for a rocking good evening as we travel back in time with Bobby Cure to the Doo-Wop days of the 1950's when the Moon was Blue, and the question of the day was, “Why Do Fools Fall in Love?”

 

August 29 – The New Orleans Mystics
