In what has become quite the annual tradition, VCPORA will once again host the Mothers’ Day Concert in Cabrini Park in New Orleans.  And as always, we’ll feature the
New Leviathan Oriental Foxtrot Orchestra.  Bring your chairs, picnics,

We’d like to offer special thanks to Carol Fleishchman and Wayne Wilkinson, whose volunteer efforts this year and in years past have made the event possible. 
 

 

 
Our very deep appreciation goes to Terminix, Terry Bruno and Vincent Palumbo in particular, for being this year’s major sponsor!
 

 

 
Additional thanks to the Friends of Cabrini Park, the City of New Orleans, and the Beauregard-Keyes House, along with all the volunteers who make this event possible!

Sunpie Barnes

New Orleans musician Sunpie Barnes divides his time between playing accordion with his band, the Louisiana Sunspots, and New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, where he’s a park ranger. In this video, we get a taste of the mix of blues, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Louisiana music that he plays, as well as the natural settings that inspire him.

Good Morning NOLA!  Happy Hump day, today is Wednesday for those of you who have lost track.  Wasn’t it a beautiful day yesterday.  That breeze blowing through the Quarter was perfect. Spring has always been my favorite time to be in the Quarter. It will be sunny this morning but will warm up as the day goes on.The high will be eighty-two degrees today.  But look for cooler temps tonight with a low in the sixties. It will be a little breezy which is always welcome when the humidity is seventy percent.  The forecast is showing just a few scattered storms this week probably on Friday.  It never hurts to keep the umbrella handy. There is still lots going on in the city as usual.   I will  be at the 1850’s House Store sigining books in a couple of weeks. I will let you know exact dates as I get them. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA!  Can you say “rain, rain, go away”?  Sorry guys, but it’s not going anywhere.  Atleast not until later tonight.  We not only have thunderstorm warnings but we are under a tornado watch too. Temps will drop after the rain rolls through and our low tonight is forty-nine.  The parades rolled anyway the rain came down.  Endymion was moved to tomorrow and will roll with Bacchus.  There is still lots to do, so don’t let a little rain stop you.  I was soaked to the skin but still did my part to line the parade route.  Hot boiled crawfish was my reward after.  Along with a cold Abita Amber I think my day went very well in spite of the rain falling in sheets.  Tomorrow is another day and should be a great one. No rain in the forecast and nice temps should make it perfect parade weather. I will be “playing” Mardi Gras on the new Nick Cage movie “Medallion” being filed in the Big Easy. It shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for me.

Country Music- the Soulful Rhythms

No matter what your preferences are, no matter what kind of disposition you have- you simply cannot refrain yourself from being mesmerised and enticed by music. Since its inception, music has been the most loved source of entertainment and people with different tastes and likings admire several kinds of music. It has different kinds and forms. Across the world different kinds of music has evolved with the emergence of distinctive civilizations and the characteristic nature of the people in different countries etc. The influence of music can be felt in every corner of the world. Various genre of music like rock, pop, classical, jazz etc have been immensely applauded by the people. Country Music

is also well accepted and admired by the music listeners across the globe. This highly melodious and mellifluous form of music is awesomely pure and subtle. Unlike the conventional pop and metal music, this genre is known for its flawless and soft rhythms that are soothing to the ears and pleasant to the soul. Many popular artists have given amazing performances and great albums that have remarkable influences from this music. These albums have achieved admirable success and recognition from the listeners.

Country music is a remarkably enticing genre of music that focuses on the melodies and the rhythms. It is identified by its immensely mellifluous tones and upbeat numbers. It is a blend of various distinctive music forms from across the world and mainly has influences from the music that was originated in the southern parts of the United States and the region of Appalachian Mountains. Around 1920, this category rapidly evolved and gained popularity among the masses. This kind of music has its roots in the various traditional and classical types like folk music, old times music, Celtic music, gospel and the blues. In the southern United States the various ethnic groups created music of different styles and the combination of all these styles emerged as the Western Music that comprises a major part of the country and western music.

There have been a number of artists and performers who have gained immense popularity with this genre of music. Elvis Presley, who was earlier known as The Hillbilly Cat was one of the biggest pop icons in the history of music. He won recognition through his immensely admirable country music performances. He was featured on the radio program Louisiana Hayride where he used to give amazing performances based on this music. Similarly Garth Brooke is one of the most appreciated country based music artist whose albums were chart toppers. He made short debut in other genres too. This genre saw its greatest high in the year 2006 when the country albums sales increased by the 17.7 percent to a whopping 36 millions.

The country pop has its roots in the soft rock and the country-politan which emerged as a sub genre of this music in the 1970’s. It was well accepted by the wide variety of audiences during the same decade. The singers like John Denver, Glen Campbell and Anne Murray were some of the most admired artists of this genre. “RhineStone Cowboy” by Campbell is amongst the best and biggest crossover music hits. The songs in this music CD are still hummed by the teenagers and youngsters. Olivia Newton John is considered as the best female country vocal performer.

Outlaw country revolutionized this genre of music completely with the derived Honky Tonk sounds of late 1950’s. After 1935, the Western Swing Big Band leader Bob Willis used drums as the major instrument in his band Texas Playboy. The drums were readily used by the country musicians and the rockabilly groups till 1955. Later, they became significant in the country bands also. The electric guitar was used in the bands that were originated in the beginning of 1938. Arthur Smith achieved immense success with the Guitar Boogie a MGM records album that declared the beginning of guitar as the most influential instrument in the country band.
