Photos from New Orleans - 1

Here are some photos from the first few days in New Orleans.
Here's Dave Alvin who played with the band The Guilty Women at the Rock'n'Bowl. Bobby Rush told a few lewd jokes and played some good acoustic blues when he did a free show at the Louisiana Music Factory.
A group picture of all the UK contingent at Ernie K-Doe's Mother in Law Lounge, with a couple of musicians who played with him back in the day.
Louisiana artist Jay Chevalier played a short gig especially for the UK contingent at Peaches Record Store.
And Marcia Ball played for free in Lafayette Square.
Now on to the the Thursday of Jazzfest. Here's local bluesman Classie Ballou.
This is jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater being interviewed - much too fragrant for Jazzfest methinks.
There was some good zydeco on hand. Here C J Chenier, son of Clifton.
Here's Geno Delafose with French Rockin' Boogie.
Back in the Blues Tent here's Bernard Allison, son of famous father Luther.
Closing the festival on one of the stages was Elvis Costello and the Sugarcanes.
