Music Maker partner artists Guitar Lightnin’ Lee, the Como Mamas, Little Freddie King and Robert Finley will all be playing at the 12th annual Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival, presented by our god friends at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. Music Maker is honored to be part of this amazing festival in the heart of New Orleans.

In an interview for the festival in Offbeat Magazine Robert Finley had these words to say about playing, “The Music Maker Relief Foundation, they really started the ball rolling,” Finley said of the organization that supports American roots musicians. “I’ll be forever appreciative for them. They turned the light on and gave me a chance to shine. I’m just along for the ride, but I’m taking it seriously because it’s an opportunity that any musician, young or old, would love to have.”
