The Silver Slipper Presents Evan Christopher and Friends
Evan Christopher brings his world class jazz back to the historic 100 Men Hall in Bay Saint Louis. Come spend a glorious time listening to jazz by the beach.
ABOUT EVAN CHRISTOPHER - Anchored in the musical vocabulary created by early Creole clarinetists such as Sidney Bechet, Omer Simeon, and Barney Bigard, Evan Christopher strives to extend the legacy of the New Orleans clarinet style. Charismatic and versatile, he was drawn to New Orleans from his native California in 1994 by the rich cultural landscape and music scene. Critics remarking on Christopher's dynamic expressiveness and intimate approach have coined his style "close-encounter music" (NEW YORK TIMES) and have called his respect for the music traditions of New Orleans, "a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past."
