New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by montana boy on May 17, 2006

The fest has been going now since around 1970. I would think that most fans of American roots music have made the trip, or at least thought about it. The fest is the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May. The music includes everything with musical roots or heritage from Louisiana. That is a fairly broad swath of music including gospel, blues, funk, Cajun and of course jazz.
