Lovers of jazz, soul, R&B and the sounds of gospel will enjoy Preservation Hall presents: Irma Thomas, The Blind Boys of Alabama & The Preservation Legacy Quintet heading to St. Petersburg Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 pm. As part of New Orleans’ musical royalty, Irma Thomas is a Grammy Award-winning singer. 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 gospel authority of The Blind Boys of Alabama (earning two Grammy nominations for their work) and you’ll enjoy a very special evening of music that showcases “The Heart and Soul Queen of New Orleans.”
