Danny Barker Banjo & Guitar Festival

January 12 – 15, 2017

The second annual festival is set for a four-day run January 14,, 2016 through January 17, 2016 - plus a special concert on January 21, 2016 featuring Maria Muldaur - and will again offer a mix of school clinics, workshops, panel discussions, interviews and evening performances at a variety of venues, including Snug Harbor, The Little Gem,  Bullet's Sports Bar,  and the Howlin' Wolf. The evening performances will feature an all-star array of New Orleans artists - and special guests Maria Muldaur - and legendary Haitian guitarist and educator Claude Carre'.

This year's festival will also celebrate the timely publication (December 1, 2016) by the Historic New Orleans Collection of a beautiful new illustrated and expanded edition of Danny Barker's acclaimed autobiography, A Life In Jazz - with a panel discussion of the new edition on January 15, 2017 at the Howlin' Wolf - and copies of the book available at all festival events. 

 

The mission of the Danny Barker Banjo and Guitar Festival is to showcase and highlight the many contributions and accomplishments of NEA Jazz Master Danny Barker: musician, singer, songwriter, raconteur extraordinaire and author - who played guitar and banjo with many top jazz artists over the course of his 70 year plus career - and served as a mentor to numerous young New Orleans artists who have since come to prominence, including Wynton Marsalis, Herlin Riley, Leroy Jones, Gregg Stafford, Dr. Michael White and Lucien Barbarin.

Major sponsors for the Danny Barker Banjo and Guitar Festival 2017 include the New Orleans Musicians' Assistance Foundation, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, and Threadhead Cultural Foundation. Generous support is also provided by the historic Carver Theater, Deering Banjos, Newcorp, NOCCA, the Palm Court Jazz Café, Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro and the UNO Jazz Studies Program. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
