In New Orleans, there’s music everywhere you turn. The impact of COVID-19 has forced many famed music venues to shutter for the time being, but there’s still a way to hear and support your favorite artists. You can buy music and merchandise, donate to a musician’s relief grant, or even live stream a concert with these resources. We’ve also created a toe-tapping, hand-clapping playlist full of our favorite New Orleans artists and songs with everything from bounce to brass. Sometimes, you just need to feel good, and our playlist will do just that.

For even more New Orleans music, check out the Offline Playlist, a live concert recording featuring over a dozen legendary New Orleans artists.
