Mississippi Rail Company at Jazz Fest, Saturday, May 2, 2015

Quint Davis and the Mississippi Rail Company
Festival boss Quint Davis introduces Mississippi Rail Company as the starting act of "Piano Heaven" at the Acura Stage.  The band hails from New Orleans, the only place from which a band like this could hail.  Their piano and horns blend New Orleans roots music, rock 'n roll, folk, and blues traditions in a unique way.
