NEW ORLEANS -- An acoustic performance by Jimmy Buffett will fill the Eddie Vedder vacancy Thursday, May 3 for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Buffett will play with Mac McAnally to fill the slot left open by Eddie Vedder, after Vedder was forced to cancel his set to heal nerve damage to his right arm.

Other acts scheduled for the day include Florence + the Machine, Esperanza Spalding, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ani DiFranco and James Cotton.
