 NEW ORLEANS, LA
Lillian Boutte, internationally recognized New Orleans vocalist, long time Jazz Ambassador to the city, and social activist. She's used her voice to share New Orleans Jazz & culture all over the world, raising money for the Katrina recovery, the New Orleans Musician's Clinic, and helping numerous musicians start their international careers. She's spent decades doing workshops for special needs children, and has always made herself available for anyone, or organization needing help.  She is now facing the devastating disease of dementia and alzheimer’s.  The family is struggling to do what needs to be done to take care of Lillian.  Your donation will help with medical supplies; skilled care givers and an additional support she needs.

The Boutté Family would like to thank everyone who went to the French Quarter Festival, and came to the stage where Tanya performed. We want you to know Lillian may not have recognized you, but she can still feel the love that she’s received from her fans all her life. All proceeds from the sale of CD’s will go to the Go Fund Me account to help with Lil’s continuing care.

Hi everyone. Iben Parnell has kindly donated the cd's Gumbo Pot, on which the great Phil Parnell featured Lillian as a vocalist: She was an inspiration to many of the lyrics and a great number of Lillian's Music Friends can be heard on the cd. We will sell the cd's on concerts and donate the full amount to Lillian. Please let me know if anyone is interested in buying the cd and I will ship it to you. https://philparnell.bandcamp.com/album/cookin-in-a-gumbo-pot.

What do you do when you have a musical but very introverted and shy 8 year old niece? You pull her up onstage and make her play something for the audience at a house concert at the Ascona Jazz Festival. Lillian wasn't only a phenomenal performer, she championed for so many of us who are doing this now today. I've pulled an evening's worth of music from 20 of her albums, songs she loved, and songs I loved watching her perform. Please join me as I pay tribute to one of the greatest singers to come out of New Orleans, a trailblazer, teacher, embassador, and one call I call Nanny. #asongforlil #jazzgreats #yougottalovelil #neworleansmusic #musicheals #musicismylife #musicalfamily #arsenedelaymusic
