Birdfoot Festival in Review



Last week, Birdfoot Festival made its second set of marks across the city, presenting three evenings of both contemporary and time-honored chamber works to audiences in a distinctive, nontraditional style.


Today in New Orleans 5.23.13


Tonight, Birdfoot Chamber Music Fest continues at Snug Harbor, Thursdays at Twilight welcomes Alex McMurray, and more. On this day in 1934, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were ambushed and killed in Bienville Parish, the end to the infamous pair’s three-year crime spree. Now, click through for Thursday's events.  


Birdfoot Hops the Night Train to Frenchmen


by Joe Shriner

On Thursday, the familiar reverberations of traditional jazz quintets, guitar-slinging buskers, and curbside brass bands on Marigny’s most dynamic street are going to have some new sounds to contend with. In one venue among the babble of barflies, fourteen artists will be offering classical works inspired by clouds and trains, as well as some serious counterpoint.
