CFE: Celebrating the Americana Music Triangle

  • by

amtMap-FNLThe Americana Music Triangle is home to music’s greatest story: nine original genres of music born in one tiny, mystical slice of the globe. Fifteen hundred miles of highway. From the moon, it’s just a triangle. But this tiny sliver of the Southeastern United States left its permanent mark on the world as the birthplace of Jazz, Blues, Country, Rock ‘N’ Roll,R&B/Soul, Gospel, Southern Gospel, Cajun/Zydeco and Bluegrass music.

The Americana Music Triangle is overflowing with the stories and songs, legends and landmarks, struggles and triumphs that created the country’s most powerful cultural export: the music that is heard all over the world.

For 2016, The New Orleans Photo Alliance, has partnered with The Jazz and Heritage Festival celebrating the Americana Music Triangle to feature photography focused on the music, people, culture and landscape that create the storied area.

This juried photography exhibit is open to all lovers New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, HWY 61, Clarksdale,  the small towns, churches, juke joints, back roads, honky tonks, dance halls and countless people in between.

The exhibition was on view at The Grandstand during the 2016 Jazz and Heritage Festival beginning April 22 and through May 1, 2016

The exhibition was juried by Sacha Lecca, the Deputy Photo Editor at Rolling Stone Magazine. Sacha has over 20 years experience in magazine publishing, including stints at Newsweek, CMP Media, and Rolling Stone.
