How Baton Rouge Helped A Musician

Friday, August 27, 2010 - 3:46pm

Donald Harrison is a saxaphone player and Jazz Musician. 

He was born and grew up in New Orleans - but plays all across the country.

Hurricane Katrina forced him - along with countless others out of the city.   Harrison spent a year and 3 months in Baton Rouge.  He says everyone he saw helped him.  LSU gave him a place to live and random people in the city gave him clothes to wear.

Harrison says he wouldn't be where he is today if it wasn't for the way he was treated in Baton Rouge.

He's back in New Orleans - not too far from where he lived before the storm.  He has four dogs - and a new CD - Quantam Leap - due out in just a few weeks.
