NEW ORLEANS, LA – Today, the Preservation Hall Foundation announced its 16th Annual Midnight Preserves Series will be held April 23-26 and April 30-May 3, 2020 at Preservation Hall. Midnight Preserves welcomes prominent, surprise guest artists from a variety of genres and origins alongside the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for intimate midnight concerts at its namesake venue in the heart of the French Quarter.

While guest artists are not announced until they reach the stage, collaborations with both chart-topping and international artists ensure audiences remember the mystique of these performances for a lifetime. Last year’s guests included Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Head and The Heart, Steve Earle, Jupiter & Okwess, José James, The Revivalists, Carl Broemel, Karl Denson, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Tribu Baharú, Pedrito Martinez and Alfredo Rodrigueze.

As always, proceeds from the series will benefit the Preservation Hall Foundation's mission to protect, preserve and perpetuate the musical traditions and heritage of New Orleans. A portion of Midnight Preserves ticket prices are tax deductible and support the foundation’s four program areas: Education, Community Engagement, Legacy and Archives.

Tickets will go on-sale to the general public this Friday, March 6th at 11am CST and will be available to purchase here.
