Theresa Andersson

Theresa Andersson, star performer at our NOLA event, is a Swedish indie soul singer-violinist beckoned by the spangled sirens of New Orleans and its devilishly hot jazz. Inspired by a one-man-puppet-show (Blair Thomas, Chicago), in which the puppeteer played multiple characters and the drums, Andersson creates a rich live sound using two loop pedals to simultaneously play violin, voice, and guitar along with her record player, drums, and dulcimer. The outcome? Andersson “delights as a dexterous one-woman band” (Spin). Andersson has performed and recorded with New Orleans luminaries Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, The Meters, and Betty Harris. She has also appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Flow Tribe

Flow Tribe serves up New Orleans’ funk in a big way, and they don’t like to keep quiet. The band’s six members comprise a smoking hot rhythm section, dueling guitars, horns, and even a washboard. Their talented take on New Orleans’ signature sound makes it hard for them to keep a low profile. They’ve shared the stage with names like John Fogerty, Trombone Shorty, funk/jazz greats Galactic, and more. Relix magazine calls them “bizarrely irresistible,” and USA Today showcased their performance earlier this year at New Orleans’ famed Jazz Fest.  Flow Tribe has partnered with JusticeAid in D.C. and New Orleans.
