On the music scene for more than 30 years Lillian is a monument to Jazz, Gospel and R&B. She has performed and recorded with a myriad of legendary musicians including Harry 'Sweets' Edison, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Clark Terry and our own Humphrey Lyttleton. Named "New Orleans Musical Ambassador" in 1986, she was only the second jazz legend in the city's history to be accorded this honour - the first being Louis Armstrong.
Lillian Boutté was on at AbbeyFest last night. Very cool indeed.
You can listen to her on Spotify.
