New Orleans-based icons, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform at Easton’s Avalon Theatre on Wednesday, October 19 at 8:00pm. Since 1961, Preservation Hall has dedicated itself to keeping the traditions of New Orleans jazz alive, both in their hometown venue and on tour around the world.
Along the way, they have brought in collaborators of all creative stripes to play, honor, and reinterpret one of the Crescent City’s most treasured musical legacies. One of these collaborations has been with My Morning Jacket, the subject of which is documented in the film Live at Preservation Hall: Louisiana Fairytale, directed by Danny Clinch. The piece was shown at SXSW, Bonnaroo, Sidewalk Film Festival, and KahBang Music & Art Festival this past year and will have an upcoming screening at the New Orleans Film Festival (Oct 14 – 20th in New Orleans, LA).
