Satchmo

See below for the Thursday and Friday events going down before the two full days of music gear up this weekend. For the first time at the fest, fans can take advantage of the much-needed addition of Satchmo in the Shade – musical performances under completely tented areas. The new 40-by-80-foot tents will cover stage areas and provide relief from the August heat. Also, don’t miss the free dance lessons offered at the festival this weekend, especially if you could use em. For more on the , go here.

Keynote Conversation – ‘SATCHMO’: LOUIS ARMSTRONG – AMBASSADOR OF JAZZ – Critically acclaimed British music writer Richard Havers is co-producer of the new comprehensive boxed set from Universal Music Group/Verve of great Armstrong recordings, ‘Satchmo’ – which will be officially released at the 2011 Satchmo SummerFest in New Orleans. The set is being hailed by experts as “the most complete Louis Armstrong boxed set ever made available”. Havers will be joined by Armstrong archivist Ricky Riccardi to discuss and play clips from the set, along with additional Armstrong re-issues scheduled for release later this year. Amongst his many books, Havers wrote the Frank Sinatra biography, ‘Sinatra’ and collaborated on two books with Bill Wyman – Bill Wyman’s Blues Odyssey and Rolling with the Stones. Richard Havers has written more than 2,000 jingles for radio and television and has produced concerts for artists such as Paul McCartney, the Beach Boys, Chicago, and America.
