Blast From The Past: Outdoor Nola: Pearl River Eco Tours

I am one of the least outdoorsy people I know. I don’t camp, don’t fish, don’t hike (you get the picture!), but living in New Orleans I have found that there are many fabulous things to do outside at all times of the year. Soaking up the sun, drinking a cold Abita and listening to live local music is a magical combination and I’m a huge fan of being anywhere you can create this experience. There are the obvious outdoor things in NOLA to do such as Jazz Fest and parades at Mardi Gras, but I am going to uncover lesser-known, but equally as...

Where do you see yourself within the next five years? Robin Barnes: I see myself growing as a musician/entertainer. That can be honing in on a musical instrument. I see myself putting out another album. I also see myself touring more. Definitely making my mark nationally/internationally. I don’t want to be just a New Orleans musician. I want to be a musician...
