New Orleans, USA - “...New Orleans is a city bursting at the seams with music. From the moment I set foot on the streets, music seemed to emerge from the walls like the old muse. In fact, that’s how I would describe the city, the muse given form and flavour.

The parade itself was something to behold. With the backdrop of beautiful Sydney, the colour, excitement, happiness and freedom. It was truly a celebration I was lucky to be a part of…” - The Memoirs of Miss Lou pg. 82
