Fats Domino, Dylan to Headline Jazz Fest

"Fats Domino, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon will join Keith Urban and Yolanda Adams at this year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival as it celebrates this city's music and culture in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Many other big acts will grace the festival, such as the Dave Matthews Band, Lionel Richie and Jimmy Buffet.

The festival is scheduled to take place April 28-30 and May 5-7.

The festival will feature, as always, many of Louisiana's favorite musicians. They include blues guitarist Walter 'Wolfman' Washington, singers Charmaine Neville and Clarence 'Frogman' Henry, clarinetist Michael White, voodoo rocker Dr. John, pianist Allen Toussaint, the Rebirth Brass Band, clarinetist Pete Fountain, singer Marcia Ball and the Dixie Cups. "

Keith Urban? The country singer from New Zealand/Australia?

Wow. We were going to try and go down for Mardi Gras as an act of solidarity, but can't. Maybe we'll make it during this shebang instead.
