Willie Nelson & Arlo Guthrie End Katrina Tour

Willie Nelson and folk singer Arlo Guthrie gave about 800 New Orleans residents some much-needed good times during a benefit concert last night


Saturday Dec 17th was the day for Texas country singer Willie Nelson and folk singer Arlo Guthrie to treat fans with their last performance of their Katrina tour. During that time, the two musicians entertained about 800 New Orleans residents with good music, a good time and a reminder of what they love most about this city.

Took place at legendary Tipitina's, the tour was the last of the series aimed to raise money for musicians left homeless and without a place to work by Katrina. Money and equipment from the Arlo Guthrie and Friends benefit tour will be donated to performers and to churches and schools that have music programs.

Nelson said before the show that he hoped his visit would encourage musicians to return and get the New Orleans music scene back on its feet.
