Evan Christopher, who was originally from California, moved to New Orleans in 1994, spent much of 1996-99 in San Antonio playing with the Jim Cullum Jazz Band, returned to New Orleans, and was forced to leave in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit.

He moved to Paris where he led the group Django á La Creole and has been back in New Orleans since 2008.

In France for the 2014 Marciac Jazz Festival, Christopher is featured on “Farewell Blues” with his Clarinet Road quartet which also includes guitarist David Blenkhorn, bassist Sebastien Girardot, and drummer Guillaume Nouaux, playing a spirited version of the 1920s New Orleans classic “Farewell Blues.”
