Jazz Fest / Wild Magnolias


April 24th, 2002 ~ It's the Crescent City celebration rivaled only by Mardi Gras, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, a magnet of music, food, and folk art embracing Louisiana and beyond. From Louis Armstrong to zydeco, we'll sample some of the soundscape and the cuisine of the festival. Plus conversations with visiting singer and musical philosopher Oscar Brown Jr., and an in-depth look at the Wild Magnolias Mardi Gras Indian tribe - a New Orleans institution that's been featured at every single Jazz Fest since 1970.
