New Orleans' rising stars Glen David Andrews Band and Corey Ledet and his Zydeco Band bring lively NOLA tunes and brass band sounds to celebrate Juneteenth. With its roots in Galveston, the holiday (Emancipation Day) is a historical homage that is growing in popularity across the Gulf Coast and the United States.
During music breaks, the audience will be treated to short readings by young poets who were featured in the Space City Slam: Grand Slam 2011 Houston competition.
