Story

Ey up, thanks for looking at our page!

This September we are cycling 650 miles from Nashville to New Orleans - through the Cradle of the Blues - to celebrate finishing two decades in education! Along the way we want to give something back to the communities we pass through and are raising money for the Preservation Hall Foundation. If you can spare a dime to help us support this fantastic place that is keeping the music heritage of The Big Easy alive by providing music education to young New Orleanians we'd be most grateful!!

In their own words, the Preservation Hall Foundation aims to: "Serve the next generation of New Orleans musicians and listeners through our education programs. We serve at-risk youth at schools, detention centers, and community centers in the Greater New Orleans area. The core constituency of our music students are elementary and secondary-schoolers, for whom we subsidize or completely underwrite the cost of weekly music classes, field trips, and educational resources". To find out more visit: https://www.preshallfoundation.org

We're riding from Nashville, Tennessee, through Cherokee, Alabama to Jackson, Mississippi eventually heading down to Baton Rouge and New Orleans. We'll sampling the music and food heavily along the way and blogging, interviewing and uploading videos to Facebook and Instagram (@wilsonemj) so make sure to follow our progress.

Thanks a lot!

Sam & Ed

    We recommend gospel lunch at Praline Connection, beignets, gumbo at Dooky Chase's and listening to Dr Michael White play the history of jazz. Take care getting in to New Orleans.
