The Open Ears Music Series has run every Tuesday night for almost 9 years. It has been a wonderful part of my musical life, and I think the musical life of New Orleans. Having said that, nothing lasts forever, and things change. The improvised/creative music scene in New Orleans is much more vibrant now than it was 9 years ago, and I have realized that I need to put my energy into other pursuits, both musical and professional.
Last night was the last Open Ears Music Series show in this almost 9 year run. There is never a time to stop something like this that won’t be awkward, but an artist cancellation and some other factors have made it clear to me that now is the time to do it. I am really sorry to cancel the things that were booked in the future, but unfortunately this is how it needs to be.
Thank you for supporting this thing for the last 8 years and 11 months, and I look forward to seeing what grows up in its place.
All the best,
