The original artist blended many styles of music, from jazz, ragtime and blues, to zydeco and Afro-Cuban rhythms, shaping the sound of New Orleans music more than any other artist before him. His music career came to a halt for a period in the 60’s, but took off once again after a performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 1971.

Lots of people migrate to the Crescent City around this time to do just this.

The Shadow artist is an English singer, songwriter and pianist whose music is deeply rooted in the sounds and traditions of New Orleans, where he resides. Last year, he won the Grammy for Best Regional Roots Music Album.
