Photoset: Big Chief Bo Dollis and the Wild Magnolias at Jazz in the Park

Last Thursday (May 16) was a big day for Jazz in the Park as Big Al Carson and the Blues Masters and Big Chief Bo Dollis and the Wild Magnolias Mardi Gras Indians boogied as the sun set over the Treme sky at the weekly spring concert series. A Tibetan monk accompanying the Dalai Lama’s visit to New Orleans was also on hand for the festivities and gave the jubilant celebration his blessing. OffBeat photographer Kim Welsh captured these excellent shots from the show. Enjoy!
