8th Annual Mississippi Delta Regional Blues Challenge – 2011
This is the BIG ONE for North Mississippi and the Delta! Past winners and participants have included David Lee Durham, LC Ulmer, Eden Brent, Homemade Jam, Mark “Mule Man” Massey and other blues recording artists. This year, the event (formerly held on a single Saturday in Oct/Nov moves to two Sundays, so that the competition doesn’t conflict with the Delta’s working musicians’ gig schedules. Amazing homegrown, Delta blues talent… at a well-organized event… that feeds into the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis early in 2012. Come support your friends and neighbors… and hear the future of Mississippi blues!
