Tulane University welcomed the First Folio to its city earlier this month in true New Orleans style: Dr. Michael White and the Liberty Brass Band led a jazz funeral for Shakespeare, followed by a “second line” procession of people carrying green and white parasols. See more photos from the event on Flickr.

This video is from the band’s “tune-up” performance in April, as part of the 400th anniversary celebrations for Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon.
