Celebrate Fat Tuesday with Louis Armstrong
Grab your beads and your beignets and join us for Fat Tuesday in the Daniels Room at the Hancock Town Library!
In the beginning there was Satchmo…Louis Armstrong. He was the grandson of slaves and an iconic trumpeter and vocalist who brought jazz from the brothels of Storyville, New Orleans to the bright lights of New York City. Kid Ory, King Oliver and Fletcher Henderson were players in Armstrong's influential rise to stardom while the Chicago and New York mob fought over this charismatic jazz star. Vocalist Nanette Perrotte adds this classic jazz from the Big Easy to her her portfolio of interactive multi artform jazz presentations. Laissez le bon temps rouler! Free and open to all thanks to the Friends of the Library.
