"Early Photos and Artifacts Offer a Rare Glimpse of Women in New Orleans Music History" by Alison Fensterstock

 Alison Fensterstock recently wrote an article in The New Orleans Advocate entitled "Early photos and artifacts offer a rare glimpse of women in New Orleans music history." The article previews Tulane’s Hogan Jazz Archive's exhibit “Building a Tradition: The Multifaceted Legacy of Women in New Orleans Music,” which includes materials from luminaries of the early years of Preservation Hall such as Billie Pierce and Sweet Emma Barrett.
