WITHER, RAIN, FLOURISH, REPEAT— A fresh sprig of resurrection fern emerges from the trunk of a live oak tree just outside the old School of Social work building. Known for its ability to dry up and then come back to life during wet, humid weather, the fern flourishes on live oaks throughout the Tulane University uptown campus.

Shorty Fest

Shorty Fest 2015

Thursday, April 30, 7 p.m.

Shorty Fest at Generations Hall is loaded with remarkable talent again this year to offer an inspirational nighttime Jazz Fest experience. A highlight is sure to be the “Hail To The Chief” set featuring Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and four generations of Golden Eagles Mardi Gras Indians. Backing up Big Chief Monk will be a stellar ensemble comprised of renowned musicians who have performed with him over the years: June Yamagishi, Nick Daniel, Raymond Weber, Kirk Joseph and Luther Dickinson (of the North Mississippi All-Stars). Other artists include Tank & The Bangas, Corey Henry & The Treme Funktet, Tysson, Sweet Crude and the New Breed Brass Band. Students from the Trombone Shorty Academy at Tulane University will perform with their instructors Edward Lee and Erion Williams from The Soul Rebels and Mainline Brass Band. Tickets are available online.
