These days, everyone’s talking about veteran native guitarist and vocalist Walter "Wolfman" Washington, and for good reason! Washington is set to receive OffBeat's Lifetime Achievement in Music award at the Best of the Beat Music Awards! at Generations Hall. Washington also reigns as King of this year’s Krewe du Vieux when it rolls on February 16. No wonder Washington is our February 2019 Music Til Ya Die™ honoree!
Still actively playing at age 75, music truly is Wolfman’s life, and he is deeply grateful for all the recognition. "I’ve been wanting every day to become a pillar of New Orleans music. And it seems to have gotten to that point,” says Washington, “(but) even now I’m not giving up. I’m just trying to make it better."
You can purchase your Walter Wolfman Washington glow-in-the-dark tee here, or in person on January 31 at the Best of the Beat Music Awards! Washington will directly receive a portion of the Professor Longhair tee sales.
MUSIC Til Ya Die creatively unites Jan Ramsey of OffBeat and Monica Kelly of Monica Kelly Studio with Kathleen McCall of NOLA Til Ya Die to pay homage to mighty musicians. Each month, the group will celebrate a local music legend with a unique original design on limited-edition tee shirts and other merchandise. Look for monthly announcements as we highlight more New Orleans musicians. Limited edition runs, so get 'em when they drop!
