Musicians suffered from Katrina to perform at music festival

Three musical acts from the Hurricane Katrina-devastated U.S. Gulf Coast are among the reggae, rock, jazz and blues legends to perform on a Thai resort island for a music festival starting Sept. 23, an event spokeswoman said Wednesday.

New Orleans' Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Ike Turner from Mississippi are scheduled to perform during the 10-day Koh Samui Music Festival. Also from New Orleans is blues and jazz musician Chris Thomas King, whose home was badly damaged by the hurricane, said festival spokesperson Lisa McWilliams.

The Koh Samui Music Festival will also feature Jerry Lee Lewis, UB40, and popular homegrown bands Tee Bone and Modern Dog, the AP says.

McWilliams said organizers expect the festival to attract more than 100,000 people this year. Last year, tens of thousands of visitors came to Koh Samui island during the event.

Koh Samui is a world famous resort island located 450 kilometers (280 miles) south of Bangkok in the Gulf of Thailand. It was not affected by the December tsunami, which hit the Andaman Sea coast on the opposite side of the Thai peninsula.
