Preservation Hall Makes 50


June 11, 2011 marks the 50th anniversary of Preservation Hall, the French Quarter sanctuary for traditional New Orleans Jazz.  Despite five decades' of changes, the Hall still showcases New Orleans indigenous music each night, and nurtures the culture it’s inextricably tied to. 

This is part of a larger project about Preservation Hall Eve has been working on. Take a look at the book version of the project.

Listen here to the audio documentaries Eve made for the exhibit about Preservation Hall at the Louisiana State Museum, in New Orleans.
