French Quarter String Band
May 26 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
French Quarter is a Tucson-based acoustic string band, specializing in an eclectic assortment of material from the 1920s to the present. Traditional folk, country-blues, trad jazz, jugband, alt-country…. songwriters from Lonnie Johnson to Leon Redbone to Townes van Zandt… so much great music… so little time!!
Some call it Americana, and that works fine for us, as long as we remember that America is first and foremost a melting pot of cultural differences – a gumbo of influences from the millions of immigrants who came to this continent from all over the globe. Perhaps nowhere in America is this cultural mélange more evident than in our namesake city and spiritual hometown: New Orleans. Stroll through the Tremé, Central City, Uptown – and of course the French Quarter – and the magic of the Crescent City oozes from every door and balcony.
