If you've never seen Sonny Landreth's hands glide over the fret of his slide guitar, you should. It's like watching someone touch the finest of silk.

Prisons and Bordellos in Louisiana

Jun 7, 2012

Time to answer the vital question, "How many festivals can one town sustain in one weekend?" Your guess is as good as ours on this week's All Things New Orleans.

Red, ripe Creole tomatoes and two-steppin' dance music from down the bayou are good reasons to head to the French Quarter this weekend.

The 26th Annual French Market Creole Tomato Festival and the 6th Annual Jazz and Heritage Foundation's Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival kick off on Saturday, and we go Inside the Arts for a sneak peek.
