Dr. Michael White, New Orleans clarinetist and jazz icon, will be playing with his band tonight at "From Bourbon Street to Bourbon Country," a fundraiser at Congregation Adath Jeshurun at 845p. Dr. White visited Louisville while he was evacuated from New Orleans during Katrina and was supported by the congregation. Five years later, this show is a big "thank you" to the community.
Being recorded for WFPK's Kentucky HomeFront radio show hosted by John Gage, the Selicot show also features local Harry Pickens.
As your favorite relocated New Orleanian, I can promise you that Dr. White is the real deal. If you love music of any stripe-- especially if you love jazz-- you should absolutely make this your Saturday night. It's FREE and includes a dessert reception and bourbon tasting. Look for me... I'll be the toe-tapping, teary-eyed, kind-of-homesick acorn!
