You can hear all kinds of music up and down Royal St and in Jackson Square from bag pipes, to violins, to electric guitar, to some instruments you’ve never seen before. To actually come across something like authentic New Orleans jazz can require a little luck or a pricey ticket to Preservation Hall.
However if luck is on your side the Jackson Square Allstars may be out doing their thing. If you’re really lucky Kenny Terry will be there.
I can’t consider myself much luckier to just step out of my home and have this incredible talent available on a daily basis. I’m not sure how I made it through any part of my life without it!
