Jazz and Blues have intertwining, complicated, magical histories, and some of their deepest roots are right here in New Orleans. In this workshop, we explore the sacred (and profane) music of the Big Easy, as well as the venues, the artists, and the legends that have defined it throughout the twentieth century. Where do music and spirituality overlap? What's the connection between guitar players and the devil (and how can he improve your playing)? What magical messages can we find in the old standards? Round out your trip to the Crescent City with a colorful introduction to "America's classical music" (and why we should stop calling it that).
