Photos from the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival

Here's the second batch of photos from my US road trip, featuring acts at the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival in New Orleans.
Kicking off day one were the Suffers, a soul band from Houston, with singer Kam Franklin.
Also on day one, here is swamp blues artist Tab Benoit.
From the second day, here is a young bluesman named Jontavius Willis.
One of the highlights was the New Orleans based Nikki Hill Band, whose rock and roll flavoured set went down well.
Another New Orleans performer, who I've seen on just about every trip to the city, Walter 'Wolfman' Washington.
Here's a Brit who has been based in New Orleans for many years, Jon Cleary.
This is Alvin 'Youngblood' Hart.
Headlining on day two, this is Taj Mahal.
From day three this is blues harmonica player Smokey Greenwell.
Bluesman brother of Freddie King, this is Benny Turner.
New Orleans based blues singer Little Freddie King.
Rock singer 'Jumpin'' Johnny Sansome.
Latest in the Baton Rouge dynasty, here is Tyree Neal, a good soul singer and guitarist.
Drummer and blues singer Cedric Burnside.
Final act of the festival was New Orleans soul man Tucka, who is very popular with the locals.
