Making a Festival Happen: The People Behind MOM

Submitted by Janie Franz on Wed, 06/01/2016 - 7:56 am

As I cover regional music festivals, I always like to show Grateful Web readers how festivals work and who puts them together. Though we’d all like to believe that magic festival elves appear in the night and toss fairy dust over a field and the next morning a festival pops up like mushrooms after a rain, it doesn’t work like that. There’s a lot of planning put into the creation and execution of a major music festival.

Grateful Web Interview with Lily Keber

It’s been forty years since the release of New Orleans pianist James Booker’s explosive live album, Blues and Ragtime From New Orleans. Once referred to by Dr. John as “the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius that New Orleans has ever produced,” Booker’s life was beyond fascinating and like many artists wasn’t fully realized until long after his death. A New Orleans native, Booker was born in 1939 and died at the tragically young age of forty-four. Still, New Orleans remembers him well and fondly.
