Contest: New Orleans Vs. Chicago (in Music, Not Football)

The current event focus for this weekend's contest, sponsored by Small World Music, is the football game on Sunday between New Orleans and Chicago. Hang on, you don't have to know about football to win.

We got to thinking about these two cities, and about their musical traditions (much stronger than their sports traditions), and wondered: why is it that New Orleans has the good pianists, and Chicago the good guitarists?

We have what we think is a cogent, if not plausible, answer. Send in an opinion, or even a dissension from the premise, or any kind of comment - cogent, plausible, or otherwise - and become eligible for a $10 gift certificate to Small World Music, where you can, of course, find much good music from both these noteworthy cities.

Send your thoughts to Small World Music directly:

Blow your horn & win ! -
