When it comes to word association, the words “clarinet” and “Evan Christopher” go hand-in-hand. Having been involved with the New Orleans music community for over 20 years, he has definitely earned that connection. Evan has also seen the music community transition and change over those decades. In this installment of NolaVie’s “Listening to Locals” series, Kelley Crawford invited Evan into the studio.
