Donald Harrison Headlines
LIVE AT THE VINEYARDS 2014
Our 9th annual Live at the Vineyards Signature Fundraising Event features 'The King of Nouveau Swing,' Donald Harrison. The gourp will bring a real New Orleans R&B, funk and dance party to the vineyards on Saturday, August 9th. Get your tickets early!!
Donald grew up in a home environment saturated with the city’s traditional music of brass bands, parades, modern jazz, r&b, funk, classical, world ethnic, and dance music. His connection to New Orleans roots were deepened by his father, a Big Chief in the African and Native American influenced culture of New Orleans’ Black Mardi Gras Indians. The culture is an offshoot culture of Congo Square, one of the only known places in North America where Africans openly participated in their culture in the 1700’s and 1800’s.
