The Jazz & Heritage Foundation's free festival features different styles of blues and barbecue. Saturday headliner Robert Cray (pictured) climbed the Billboard charts with his 1986 album Strong Persuader and has released a steady stream of blues albums. The lineup includes a host of Louisiana- and Mississippi-born or -based musicians, including Bobby Rush, King Edward, Grady Champion, Deacon John, Little Freddie King, The Como Mamas, Louis "Gearshifter" Youngblood and new New Orleanian Samantha Fish.

  There's barbecue from Blue Oak BBQ, Central City BBQ, The Joint and Saucy's BBQ, and dishes from longtime New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival vendors Vaucresson's Sausage Company and Walker's Southern Style BBQ. There's also German-style sausages from Bratz Y'all!, crepes from Crepes a la Cart, Food Drunk food truck and desserts.
