New Orleans’ French Quarter Festival 2013 – Hour Two
World Footprints continues to let the good times roll with the powerful second hour of our LIVE French Quarter Festival 2013 broadcast. For our 6th annual broadcast, we introduce the founders of Timecode: NOLA a popular independent film festival. Actor Terence Rosemore continues to help us co-host the show and contributes to the conversation about the film and television industry in New Orleans. Then political power couple James Carville and Mary Matalin join us. They may not agree on anything in the political sphere but they do agree on their mutual love for New Orleans. Hear why they chose to leave the political jungle of Washington, DC to raise their family in the Big Easy.
French Quarter Festival was first produced in 1984 as a way to bring residents back to the Quarter; following the World’s Fair and extensive sidewalk repairs in the French Quarter. More than 1,500 community volunteers help to make the festival a success. French Quarter Festivals, Inc. is a private, non-profit 501c(3) organization.
More than 20 stages throughout the French Quarter celebrate local music and represent every genre from traditional and contemporary jazz to R&B, New Orleans funk, brass bands, folk, gospel, Latin, Zydeco, classical, cabaret, and international.
