Riding the Swan Boat and rolling down Monkey Hill in Audubon Park, bowling at Paradise Lanes, being in or attending a dance recital at the Municipal Auditorium—just a few of the special moments shared in GROWING UP IN NEW ORLEANS.
The one-hour program looks back at some New Orleans childhood experiences during the 1950s and 60s.
Included in the documentary are rare photos and footage. Among those interviewed are Bryan Batt, singer Leah Chase, Dr. John, Tom Fitzmorris, Ricky Graham, “Deacon John” Moore, Edmond Muniz, Charmaine Neville and many more local notables.
DVD extra includes an interview with “Deacon John” concerning his childhood and early music career.
GROWING UP IN NEW ORLEANS is hosted and produced by Peggy Scott Laborde.
