Kermit Ruffins Will Honor Louis Armstrong
Kermit Ruffins & the BBQ Swingers will perform at New York’s Highline Ballroom on August 8. The show falls a few days after Louis Armstrong’s birthday—August 4—and Ruffins will celebrate with a special Armstrong birthday set. He will also offer a set of his own material.
As previously reported, Ruffins will release the new album We Partyin’ Traditional Style! on May 28. The album contains reworked versions of a number of New Orleans signature songs.
