Preservation Hall Announces 2018 Salon Series
NEW ORLEANS - Artistic Manager Ron Rona issued the following statement for this year’s Salon Series:
”While there’s a myriad of things to marvel about here at the Hall, we consider it an incredible honor to bear witness to a living history every night. You can hear it in Lester Caliste’s trombone. Feel it in the beat of the bass drum as it resonates through the wooden floor beneath our feet. We imagine it daily as we hear those endless stories from the musicians in the courtyard before the show. And it’s still here now.
”All we can think here is...how do we continue to keep Tradition connected to here and now? Will it do it on its own? It’s a whole lot to think about and it’s something we’ll be asking ourselves until our time passes. And there’s plenty of people here and in other communities thinking about that same thing, and they’re making their history breathe and manifest in new and innovative ways. We’re certainly not alone.
”It’s our great pleasure to invite you back for this year’s Salon Series at Preservation Hall. We hope you can join us once again in this continued conversation and celebration.”
