HEADLINE INFORMATION

Gus Cannon is being inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame on May 5. A note for him has been approved for him on Beale Street but the money has not yet been raised for its manufacture and installation.

Let’s do this ourselves. If Gus and his Cannon Stompers are good enough for our Blues Hall of Fame, then we ought to make sure this happens.

All your life you have been told to not put cash in an envelope, but I am asking you to stick a dollar bill in an envelope and send it to:

The Blues Foundation

49 Union Avenue

Memphis, TN 38103

Put a buck in an envelope right now so that his note will be ready by the time of his induction. In this way, he can be inducted on May 5 and his note can be unveiled the next day!


Also, feel free to post this on your social network sites, your business website and forward this to all your friends!

We will see you on Beale Street!

JUKE JOINT FESTIVAL - CLARKSDALE, MS - through Sunday, April 18, 2010

JUKE JOINT FESTIVAL

Our 2010 edition of Juke Joint Festival is dedicated to Wesley Jefferson, Sam Carr and Miss Sarah Moore.

Spring is just around the corner, and that means the world’s one and only Juke Joint Festival will be here before you know it. The date: Saturday, April 17, 2010. With Related Events on Friday, April 16th and Sunday, April 18th 2010. The place: Clarksdale, Mississippi.

What is the Juke Joint Festival? It’s a positive event for everyone in Clarksdale. It’s good for families, businesses, musicians and tourists alike. The festival itself combines an international “blues festival” with a community-minded “small-town fair,” creating a strong and memorable event like no other in the universe. It’s organized by the Clarksdale Downtown Development Association (CDDA) and staffed by enthusiastic volunteers. This “half small-town fair, half blues festival” does more than simply
entertain attendees. It aims to educate and enlighten native Deltans and blues tourists alike through a series of performances, exhibits, and presentations involving music, art, storytelling, film, and children’s events. The event mixes visitors with locals and showcases the economic power of cultural tourism, turning average Deltans into ambassadors for the region.

Speaking of economics, last year’s festival was our most successful yet with full hotels, doubled attendance and expanded press coverage. The Juke Joint Festival makes every effort to keep vendors, talent and suppliers as local as possible. A family-friendly event also provides a bus service at night to discourage drinking and driving between music venues. For more information and pictures from last year’s inaugural event, log on to
www.jukejointfestival.com.
