Some of the locals may know him by name, I do not. If you happen to have a link to a picture, (could post on a site that allows links), some of the more frequent visitors may recognize and be able to answer your question. If that is not a possiblity, maybe a description of his costume/act and where in the Jackson Sq area you typically see him.

Grandpa generally is on the corner of Toulouse and Chartres now. He rarely goes to the square.

Grandpa plays in front of Rouses's Market (corner of Royal & Toulouse). Usually I have seen him at night, not too late (maybe between 6:00-10:00?). Ask him to sing Sam Cooke's "a change is gonna come"...beautiful!
