Savannah Music Festival: Preservation Hall Jazz Band with the Del McCoury Band Live
Airs Thursday, August 8 at 8 p.m. On paper, it wouldn't appear that the mixture of a traditional New Orleans jazz group and a classic bluegrass band on the same stage would make for a musical extravaganza. But when the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Band decided to make a recording and follow it up with a national tour, the result was the essence of the term "Americana". In this episode, we listen to a seamless blend of soul-lifting traditional harmonies as the high and lonesome sound of the Appalachians comes together with the hot and lively jazz of New Orleans.
