Little Gem Saloon hosts Evan Christopher’s Clarinet Road for the 2nd Annual New Orleans Ragtime Festival. Commemorating the centenary of the closing of Storyville, the clarinet crusader celebrates pioneers of traditional New Orleans music who transformed the popular ragtime of their day. Listen, dine and dance to the strains of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton and Tony Jackson as well as to the sultry Slow-Drags, Tangos and Blues that coalesced into a new music that would become known to the world as Jazz.
For this concert, Christopher is featuring stride-piano virtuoso Ehud Asherie from New York.
Special guests, Patrick Mackey’s Silver Swan Ragtime Quartet open the evening.
