When I moved to the French Quarter as a teenager, I was instantly immersed in a music scene that represented the very best live music available in the U.S. Some of those names included (among many others) Germaine Bazzle, Irma Thomas, Dr. John, The Nevilles, The Meters, The Radiators, The Cold, James Booker and my favorite, Little Queenie and the Percolators. Little Queenie herself (Leigh Harris) remains the type of performer that gives it all and does it with enormous style. Her musicians are always the best at what they do and her respect for them and the songs themselves is so evident that you know you can relax and enjoy the show ‘cuz you are in good hands.
Since the levee breaks of 2005, Leigh has physically left her city of New Orleans to find some peace and stability in North Carolina, but her roots and her heart remain in New Orleans, as evinced by her new project seen below. I recommend that you kick some cash to our Leigh, for your own good in the long run. You’ll receive the new album, maybe an old one and some other goodies from our brilliant Little Queenie.
