Theresa Andersson to Play Christmas New Orleans Style Premiere
Theresa Andersson, John Fohl and David Doucet will perform at the premiere of the Christmas New Orleans Style Concert Series at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans on December 2. The event will coincide with the lighting of Jackson Square, which is located directly in front of the cathedral. The lighting of Jackson Square will ring in the 28th Christmas New Orleans Style, a monthlong celebration designed to bring people to the city during an otherwise slow time for tourism. All Christmas New Orleans Style Concert Series shows at St. Louis Cathedral will begin at 6pm and are free and open to the public. The series will feature performances by Ellis Marsalis, Philip Manuel and Shades of Praise, John Boutte and more. A full list of performers can be found here.
Andersson is known for using looping pedals to build layers of percussion and stringed instruments that create a backdrop for her to sing over.
