The Dakota and Live at the Guthrie present: The Heart and Soul Queen of New Orleans

If the French Quarter is the musical heart of New Orleans, then Preservation Hall is its heartbeat. Take a group of long-time performers from the venerable concert hall, combine them with the Crescent City’s “Soul Queen” Irma Thomas, throw in the spiritual authority of The Blind Boys of Alabama, and you get a very special evening of music that showcases “The Heart and Soul Queen of New Orleans.” 

Touring together for the first time, "The Heart and Soul Queen of New Orleans" featuring Irma Thomas, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and The Preservation Legacy Quintet, will treat audiences to a special evening filled with musical collaborations and traditional standards.
