(JACKSON, Miss.) – The Margaret Walker Center will host its annual fundraiser, An Evening with Zac Harmon, in the F.D. Hall Music Center Auditorium at Jackson State University at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 7. The evening will also be a celebration of Margaret Walker’s birthday; she would have turned 96-years-old that day. Tickets are $30 general admission.
Born and raised in the heart of Jackson, Miss., Zac Harmon is a true disciple of the blues music that emanated from the city’s Farish Street Historic District. Universally recognized as the home of such legends like the late, great Elmore James, Farish Street was quite simply the impetus for the blues, as it was the center of culture, commerce and creativity during Harmon’s early years.
