Event Details

The Barbarin Family has played an important role in the continuing history of jazz music in New Orleans and the world.  It all started with Isidore Barbarin, joint founder of the Onward Brass Band.  His son, drummer Paul Barbarin divided his time between Chicago, New York and New Orleans from the 1920's to the 1950's playing with Joe "King" Oliver and Louis Armstrong to name a few.  From the 1950's until his death in 1969 he was a bandleader and composer.  His name lives on today whenever a band plays "Bourbon St. Parade" or "Paul Barbarin's Second Line".  Paul's brother Louis also played the drums and helped define jazz drumming in New Orleans.  Recording artist and trombonist Lucien Barbarin is Paul's great-nephew and performs with Preservation Hall and Harry Connick Jr..  There is also a connection to the great guitarist Danny Barker who was Isidore's cousin.

Members of the Barbarin Family are coming to New Orleans from across the United States to celebrate their family's incredible contribution to American Music.
