From our friends at Offbeat Magazine…
“This weekend, New Orleans hosts the Boswell Sisters Centennial Celebration, a festival focused on the lives and music of the New Orleans sisters whose brought jazz harmonies to popular song, and influenced talents including Ella Fitzgerald, the Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and many more.
Vocal groups including New Orleans’ Pfister Sisters will perform songs from the Boswell songbook, and there will be a bus tour of Boswell sites and a showing of Boswell film clips.
The Pfister Sisters will perform a free show Saturday at 2 p.m. at the New Orleans Jazz Historical Park, and that night Portland’s Stolen Sweets play Snug Harbor. For a complete list of free and ticketed events, go to Bozzies.com/centennial.”
