New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest Performers Announced

We know the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is returning to New Orleans, and we even know the dates (see Dates for New Orleans’ Jazz Fest Announced), and now we finally know who will be performing.

With a line-up that could shock even the most weathered festival-goer, this year’s festival features a wide range of jazz, folk, mainstream, pop and alternative performers from both New Orleans and around the globe. Jazz performers scheduled so far include Fats Domino, Irvin Mayfield (pictured) and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Kermit Ruffins, Terence Blanchard, Ellis Marsalis with Lew Tabackin, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville, Hugh Masekela, and Donald Harrison with George Coleman and Eddie Palmieri.
