The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival brings an unparalleled line-up to twelve stages from April 29 to May 1, and May 5 to May 8, 2011. Jazz musicians are featured, as are hundreds of artists from the state of Louisiana. Yet the line-up isn’t limited to Louisiana or jazz musicians; just about every genre of music will be represented.
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival line-up includes:
Louisiana artists include:
Big Sam’s Funky Nation
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band
The Creole Wild West Mardi Gras Indians
In addition to music, guests of New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts attending the festival will have the opportunity to visit a Louisiana Folklife Village and a Native American Village; both present unique aspects of their culture and influences. Enjoy hands-on learning of traditional crafts or a relaxing, shady place to sit.
Since it wouldn’t be a New Orleans Festival without food, food will be abundant. In addition to Louisiana Cajun and Creole staples, dishes from all over the world will be served. You’ll have to decide whether you want to tuck into a plate of grid green tomatoes and catfish almondine, or a bowl of Vietnamese pho. No matter what, be sure to save room for dessert: try a sweet potato cookie or a slice of lemon pound cake.
You’ll undoubtedly be tired at the end of each day, and New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts stand ready to welcome music fans with plenty of southern hospitality. Sink into a comfortable bed at your New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, and dream of the Jazz and Heritage Festival.
