This year's Highland Jazz and Blues festival is dedicated to Highland resident and blues artist Buddy Flett, who has been recovering from a serious illness and will perform.

Saturday's fest kicks off at noon with a 10-minute "Second Line" performance by the Zillionaires and members of the Red and Black Marching Brass Band. (This nifty brass band has also been a big part of the Mardi Gras parade in Highland. They work in tandem with the Blanc et Noir Marching Society).

Lewis House

675 Jordan
675 Jordan is where you'll find one of Highland's large Victorian homes. At the rear of the property is the original carriage house. You can find out more about the Lewis House in the new HRA tour guide.

Click on the above picture if you want to see a larger version of the house. It'll also take you to more work by Shreveport photographer Mike Rosebery. He's got a great eye for all the beauty in Shreveport.

We're just a days away from one of the most unique celebrations in Shreveport. Saturday, November 15, 2008 brings the annual Highland Jazz and Blues Festival to the pine scented hills of Columbia Park.

New this year, the outdoor party has a MySpace page. If you're still not sure what to expect, mosey over to Trudeau's Shreveport Blog to look over his posts on the last couple of years of the festival.
