LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL: THE STORY OF NEW ORLEANS

Retired Church of England minister Ron Cassidy has been a jazz musician and fan virtually all his life. In recent years he has had the privilege of visiting the Mecca of jazz fans, New Orleans, several times, and has come to love is unique atmosphere, culture and of course its music.
His talk, illustrated by slides, covers the whole history of the city, with special reference to jazz(and the many stories attached to it), as well as the trauma of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the city’s subsequent recovery.
The talk concludes with the confident affirmation that, whatever may occur, the “Good Times” will continue to roll.
