This week join us for music inspired by New Orleans, where the rich ethnic and cultural makeup set the stage for development and evolution of many distinctive traditions. A new style of music came out of New Orleans after World War II. Prominent musicians such as Fats Domino, Professor Long Hair and Chris Kenner helped shape what was first widely known as “rhythm and blues.” Click here to get a preview of Mo’ Easy.
