One of New Orleans’ most popular vocalists is John Boutté. He plays most Saturday evenings at d.b.a. on Frenchmen Street. Boutté often covers songs from Leonard Cohen to Annie Lennox, and collaborates frequently with other NOLA musicians. If you’ve ever watched the HBO show Treme, you’ve already heard John Boutté sing – he’s behind the theme song (the last link in this post). And if you check out his show, he almost always sings it – so pack your dancing shoes!
