Keyboardist Jon Cleary, known for his work with Bonnie Raitt among others, is back in the islands for a pair of solo project dates. He told HPR’s Dave Lawrence about it and what led to an Englishman adopting New Orleans as his home.
Jon Cleary played on Maui earlier in the week; he performs this Saturday in a free show at the Hallowballoo Music & Arts Festival on Nu`uanu Avenue, 5:30 to 10pm.
