CANTON: Canton Blues & Soul Festival

On Saturday Canton’s own Grady Champion, whose band won the International Blues Challenge this past January, is presenting the first annual Canton Blues & Soul Festival this Saturday at the Canton Multipurpose Center. The show features Champion, 95-year-old Honeyboy Edwards, Jackson blues artists King Edward, Eddie Cotton, Jr., and R&B bands the Bar-Kays, Midnight Star, and the Dazz Band.

Here’s the story, with a brief interview with Grady, that I did for the Clarion Ledger.

Tickets are $20 in advance via Ticketmaster, $25 at the door
