Earlier this week, my friend and Cajun Tomato contributor Laura McKnight wrote a piece about the highlights and lowlights of her Jazz Fest experience.
Laura, a former coworker of mine on the bayou, covered the festival for the New Orleans Times-Picayune. I’ve always been intrigued by the concept of covering a festival, and whether it would be more or less fun than attending the festival as a fan. With this in mind, I asked her to participate in a Q&A via email about separating Laura, The Music Fan from Laura, The Budding Music Journalist.
Laura was kind enough to oblige my request. Below are her answers to my admittedly silly questions. Merci beaucoup, Laura!
