  • Kenny G

  • John Mellencamp, and

  • Robert Plant. . . to name just a few

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell  announced the music lineup for the 2011 Festival scheduled for April 29 – May 1 and May 5 – 8. With twelve stages of almost every style of roots music, Jazz Fest presents one of the entertainment world’s most diverse music lineups, including its unparalleled showcase of Louisiana’s unique culture.  Hundreds of thousands of fans annually flock  to the seven-day event that has been called America’s best festival.

The 2011 Festival will also host the largest celebration of Haitian culture in the U.S. since the devastating earthquake one year ago.  New Orleans and Haiti have shared a deep cultural connection for over three hundred years and many of the local traditions and customs owe their roots to this complex Caribbean country.  The Jazz Fest is proud and honored to host the icons of Haitian music and culture including Wyclef Jean, Tabou Combo, RAM, Boukman Eksperyans, Emeline Michel, Djakout #1, DJA-Rara and Ti-Coca & Wanga Négès.

  1. is your website compatible with iphone.because when i tried to read your blog from my iphone the sidebar got messed up.

    • It should be, as it is usually written & reviewed both by a regular laptop and an Ipad. We review it with an Iphone as well. We will check into that promptly for an problems, and contact WordPress if something needs to be resolved. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, and thank you very much for reading it!

    • We have checked the compatibility from one of our own IPhones. Since we did not locate an issue with it, I have forwarded on your question to WordPress for review, along with your comments. Thank you very much for bringing it to our attention, and thank you for your interest in reading our site! I will post an update as soon as any information is received back from WordPress.

      • I received a response back from WordPress today. They replied for both Ipad and Iphone with this information for you and others who may experience the same issue: Your site is indeed set to display a special theme for iPhone and one for iPad. Still, iPhone users have a link at the bottom of the pages to switch to the regular view, and this is probably what your user did.

        Again, thank you for your interest in our site. Please let me know if you have any further questions and I am happy to address them for you.

  2. Unfortunately I am having trouble with your RSS . Don’t know why Fail to subscribe to it. Is there anybody else experiencing similar rss problem? Anybody who knows please respond.

    • I am not sure. WordPress was experiencing problems today that they are working to resolve. Can you please let me know if it continues to be a problem by tomorrow? I anticipate they will have it corrected by then. I will also notify them that you have been experiencing this problem so they can examine the situation proactively. Thank you very much for your interest in our site!
