Good Nawlins blues in October???

Postby WayneS » Wed Apr 18, 2012 5:36 am

Wife and I are thinking hard about going to New Orleans for a vacation in October. We wouldn't be making the trip just to listen to blues-- we've never been to the deep south and would like to see New Orleans, maybe Baton Rouge too.

But some good blues, either acoustic or electric, traditional or contemporary, would be a HUGE plus. I play mostly acoustic and traditional, but would not be looking for jams.

Anyone recommend any good bars or venues? I don't think we're up for the Bourbon Street schtick-- some small bars with less-known, but good, bluesmen would be far more fun for us. (By the way, I'm a big fan of lap steel blues, and so will hope to hear Spencer Bohren.)

Thanks for any nudges.
