Pianos are the heartbeat of New Orleans music. Think Jellyroll Morton, Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Dr. John, Henry Butler, Tuts Washington, James Booker, Huey Piano Smith and the inestimable Allen Toussaint, this year’s poster honoree. Not since 1997, when the HowAhYa™ Shirt bore the percussion instruments of that year’s poster subjects, the Neville Brothers, has the BayouWear® fabric been so closely tied to the poster’s theme. Sea-Saint was the legendary Toussaint-owned recording studio that tracked the New Orleans sound of the Meters and Dr. John and lent it to Paul McCartney and Paul Simon. 

Kathy Schorr, America’s premier fabric artist, riffs on these stringed behemoths to create a multi-hued funky motif of sprightly dimension. The allegorical lapping of curlicued musical tides is echoed in the boing of the instruments’ strings. Layers of ebony and ivory are formed into radius-edged buttons that lend a subtly sophisticated coda to a beautiful arrangement.
