NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival draws fans of every age through timeless music played by artists who have handed down their know-how and love for their craft to their children.
At Friday's festival, Charmaine Neville and her band shook the Blues Tent with a rendition of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" and The Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," with help from her son, Damion on vocals, and her father, Charles Neville on saxophone.
They're not the only Nevilles playing this year's festival. Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk plays Sunday and includes another cousin, Ian Neville on guitar.
Their family is just one example of how the music has flowed from one generation to the next and how the festival, by showcasing them, continues the city's musical heritage.
