The Preservation Resource Center has relaunched it’s New Orleans Jazz Houses mobile guide during New Orleans Jazz Fest 2015! The PRC relaunched the app at an event honoring Professor Longhair. His home in Central City, New Orleans, underwent extensive renovation and now music clips, his biography and historic images are featured in the app.
The event unveiled the home’s plaque showcasing the home’s historic and cultural significance. Professor Longhair’s daughter also converted half of the residence into a House Museum, which officially opened to the public (the image above is Longhair’s piano situated in his practice room). In traditional New Orleans fashion, the event turned into a community block party featuring live music.
