Highland Blues & Jazz Fest features former Shreveporter Kevin Russell and The Gourds on Sat, November 13

The 7th annual Highland Jazz + Blues Festival welcomes The Gourds, fresh from live performances on Austin City Limits, to Columbia Park on Saturday, November 13, says Liz Swaine.

Gourds singer-songwriter Kevin Russell lived in Shreveport in the 80's and fronted a punk band called the Picket Line Coyotes. You can catch a bit of his nostalgia for that era in the tune, "Shreveport," from The Gourds excellent album, "Haymaker."

Also in the Highland Fest lineup are David Egan and Twenty Years of Trouble, Robin and the Bluebirds, AJ and the Two Tone Blues Band, AJ Haynes and the Monkey Business, Buddy Flett and friends, Otis Ockley and The Space Travelers.
