Announcing the 2020 Preservation Hall Foundation Legacy Awards

Article Contributed by Preservation Hall | Published on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Six incredible Preservation Hall musicians will be honored as Master Practitioners and inducted into the Preservation Hall Foundation Legacy Program during the fourth annual Legacy Awards later this month! We hope you’ll join us for a virtual musical celebration, live from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band Youtube, on Wednesday, October 28 at 7 PM CT.

The Foundation’s Legacy Program was originally established in 2015 to reflect the values and practices from Preservation Hall’s history: providing tangible support to elder musicians, ensuring our culture bearers are honored, and that their enduring contributions are celebrated and rewarded for many generations to come.

As we await the day when we can see these musicians perform in person again, we are honored to tell the incredible stories of our six 2020 Master Practitioners:

Kerry Brown

Wendell Brunious

Roger Lewis

Richard Moten

Steve Pistorius

Gregg Stafford
