This week’s program is part 3 of a 3 part series, celebrating 4 years of “New Orleans All the Way Live."
Last week, we met up with chefs, cooks and other culinary caretakers for stories, recipes and some food history. This week we discover the inner workings of some instruments and the musicians that make them come alive.
Bruce Daigrepont shows us the guts of an accordion. Walter “Wolfman” Washington talks about how his uncle showed him how to tune a guitar. Jeff Albert talks about “Open Ears”, a weekly music series at the Blue Nile Balcony. And this is just a small slice of the pie as we talk with many other artists and find out where to catch them live.
Be sure not to miss the first two parts in our 4th anniversary series:
In Part 1: Hustlin' Down in New Orleans we catch up with Ivan Neville and Paul Sanchez, two Nola boys who have grown up to produce two very different styles of New Orleans music, and also John Blanchard, the owner of Rock N' Bowl, a fantastically unique New Orleans venue.
In Part 2: Culinary Caretakers we met up with chefs, cooks and other culinary caretakers for stories, recipes and some food history.
