Joe Ashlar will be playing three great shows at and around the 2013 French Quarter Festival in New Orleans.  On Saturday April 13th from 3:30-5:30pm, Joe can be seen with the New Orleans Helsinki Connection Band at the Where Y’at Magazine Stage on Bourbon Street.  The group features New Orleans trumpet legend Leroy Jones on trumpet and vocals, and Katja Toivola on Trombone.  Then later that night at 9pm, Joe will join clarinet virtuoso and composer Evan Christopher for a set of music at Cafe Istanbul in the New Orleans Healing Center.  If you can’t make it that night, Ashlar and Christopher will join forces again on Sunday, April 14th at New Orleans Premier Jazz Club; Snug Harbor on Frenchmen street, for two more shows at 8pm and 10pm.  Info on these shows and others can be found on the Shows page of this site by Clicking Here, or by clicking on the “Shows” link in the menu above.  Hope to see you at the shows, and Happy French Quarter Fest!
