Milo's Music Parlor, hosted by the President and Janitor of Milo Records, Kim Vu, is an intimate conversation with artists shaping the contemporary New Orleans musical landscape. Living legends, young upstarts, and national and international acts making a pass through the city play an intimate set to a small audience of music appreciators, then step away from their instruments and talk with Kim. The audience join in the conversation. Milo's Music Parlor is a unique New Orleans night out: something between soundcheck and speakeasy, on-stage, back-stage, and after-show party.
You don’t have to go to far out of New Orleans city limits to run into small-town Louisiana and the music that it incubates. From Cajun, to Zydeco, and in today’s case, bluegrass and country, Louisiana towns have cradled a number of notable roots musicians, such as singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams to Zydeco man Corey Ledet. So it’s a pleasure, but no surprise to find Thomas and Theresa, young, fresh transplants to New Orleans, attending Loyola University. Childhood friends from the small Southwest Louisiana town of Sulphur, they are able to masterfully move between many styles of music all while keeping true to the acoustic and raw roots of the instruments.
