Episode 4: From The President To Frenchmen Street
Welcome back to Festival Circuit: New Orleans. In this episode, we’re going to explore the late night music scene around jazz fest.
We hear from George Porter, Papa Mali and Robert Walter about the magic of one-time late night collaborations, and we talk with Irma Thomas about performing with Allen Toussaint on the President. We also explore the growth of Frenchmen Street as a destination, the legacy of Tipitina’s, and amazing late night shows over the past 50 years.
