Dixieland Jazz, Food and Culture from New Orleans, and Arts Greensboro
First we start off with some authentic sounds of New Orleans, and for that we go way back to the early beginnings of jazz. It’s a style of music known as Dixieland, and the Muddy River Jazz Band was here to tell it Live in Studio A. Writer, journalist, documentary filmmaker, food historian and New Orleans native Lolis Eric Elie keeps the gumbo train going next with a look at his city’s history and its evolving cuisine post Katrina from fabulous Phu to tremendous tacos New Orleans’ style. He’s got a new book Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans and he’s here to share recipes. And Arts Greensboro’s fearless leader Mr. Tom Philion joins David Ford with a sneak preview of 17 Days Arts and Culture Festival. All of this on Triad Arts Weekend.
