If you’ve been following this blog then you are familiar with Playing for Change and its videos. The originators of the Playing for Change movement gathered many of the musicians and they went on tour. This video features Grandpa Elliot from New Orleans and Clarence Bekker from the Netherlands who were such standouts in the Stand by Me video. Unfortunately Roger Ridley, who opened that video passed on in 2005.
This video was shot live in New Orleans. The group will be performing at my favorite music venue, Tipitina’s on July 18th. You’ll have to watch clips of the show when they’re released because, as you can imagine, tickets were sold out minutes after they were put on sale.
