Ogden Museum of Southern Art says
Join us for a very special Ogden After Hours in the Museum’s historic Patrick F. Taylor Library featuring Walter “Wolfman” Washington! Designed by nationally renowned 19th-century architect Henry Hobson Richardson, the Library opened on Mardi Gras Day in 1889 and is the only extant building in the South by this important American architect and Louisiana native. Rarely open to the public, this beautiful space, complete with vaulted ceilings adorned with individually carved “Hounds of Knowledge,” makes for an impressive and intimate concert venueWalter “Wolfman” Washington has been an icon on the New Orleans music scene for decades. He began his career in the heyday of the 1950s R&B period that made New Orleans the recording destination of choice for hit makers like Ray Charles and Little Richard. On the road by his late teens, Washington spent over two years backing the great vocalist Lee Dorsey, which took him to the legendary music halls of America, including appearances at the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem. With his breadth of experience and seemingly endless repertoire, each of his highly danceable shows is one-of-a-kind. Like the greatest bluesmen, Washington channels his everyday life into his music. Depending on the setting, the band plays blues, R&B, soul, funk, jazz and everything in between with pure heart. The Patrick F. Taylor Library is sure to inspire an unforgettable performance. Doors open at 5:30pm, show at 6:00pm. Free for members, $12.50 general admission.
