tuba player, new orleans, louisiana. what a well-loved instrument. i went back a few days later, and he was jamming with a flute-playing friend in the same spot. they got the whole crowd of onlookers to sing you are my sunshine and amazing grace, and my love for nola grew three sizes that day.
accordion player, new orleans, louisiana. this city s a mecca for musicians, and i found this gentleman playing outside jackson square in the french quarter. in my last hour in nola, i made a point to just sit on the sidewalk and absorb the music coming from every direction.
