I have been a vendor for the Highland Jazz & Blues festival for about 7 years. Over the last few years I have volunteered my time to assist with the Highland Jazz & Blues Festival in Shreveport. It is my passion. It is the only event that I could have barely made booth rental fee and still not be upset. It is the closest festival in the Shreveport/Bossier area that has that New Orleans flare or vibe. It is always the highlight of my year. With that being said, my greatest joy has been the privilege to design the art work for the 2016 poster. I couldn’t share the image I created until the festival reveals the musical line up for this year. The unveiling of the poster and line up release was last night at Twisted Root. I am so thankful for all the people in Shreveport/Bossier that have supported me through years. Many of them came out last night to share in my joy of the poster being shown for the first time. The response was overwhelming. I got wonderful feedback on the image. The Shreveport community is totally excited about our lineup this year. Soul Rebels Brass Band is our headlines. We have 6 other acts will all help to make this year epic. I’m so very grateful and humbled to have been given this opportunity to share with Shreveport/Bossier through my art the way I see the Highland Jazz and Blues Festival. Save the date, September 17, 2016!!! Year 13 will be big!!!!
