Preservation Hall

This Saturday the Preservation Hall Jazz Band celebrates its 50th anniversary with a performance at, of all places, Carnegie Hall.  As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us in this archival edition of Fishko Files (recorded in pre-Katrina New Orleans), Preservation Hall is about as far from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center as a concert space can get.
