If the French Quarter is the musical heart of New Orleans, then Preservation Hall is its heartbeat. Take this group of world-class musicians plus legendary five-time Grammy winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, and combine them with Grammy-winning singer Irma Thomas, the “Soul Queen of New Orleans,” and you get a very special evening of music that simply oozes with the Crescent City vibe. It’s the next best thing to being in the French Quarter!
