Presented by the Chan Centre

In 2014 Dee Dee Bridgewater and Irvin Mayfield made plans to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina by celebrating the musical legacy and culture of the great city of New Orleans. The resulting project Dee Dee’s Feathers mixes up a gumbo that celebrates musicians like Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and Dr. John, great songs like “St. James Infirmary” and “House of the Rising Sun,” and New Orleans places and institutions like Congo Square, the Tremé district and the Mardi Gras Parade.

Join us for this pre-concert talk entitled The Road from New Orleans to Dee Dee’s Feathers with Nou Dadoun, Host of CFRO’s A-Trane Radio Program. Nou will guide you through the back alleys of the birthplace of Jazz to the doorstep of the party hosted by Dee Dee Bridgewater, Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.
