If the French Quarter is the musical heart of New Orleans, then Preservation Hall is its heartbeat. Take a group of long-time performers from the city’s venerable Preservation Hall concert hall. Combine them with the spiritual authority of the Blind Boys of Alabama featuring the Crescent City’s “Soul Queen” Irma Thomas and you get a night with New Orleans heart and soul like no other.
