This Just In ...from Visit Natchez

Blues Filling the April Air

Apr/20/2007 - Apr/22/2007

The Blues takes over Natchez with the upcoming Natchez Bluff Blues Festival. The festival grounds at Historic Rosalie will be the site where music will rise above the bluff overlooking the Mighty Mississippi River. Among the artists scheduled to appear are local artists, Black Bayou, Less than Zero, Brandon McCraney, Maggie Brown, Alvin Shelby & The Holy Family Choir, and YZ Ealey. Blues icons performing throughout this year's events are Natchez own Brent Anderson, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Rex Pruitt, Julie Ripling, Big Bill Morganfield, A.J. Slick, Sherman Lee Dillon, and Lil’ Jimmy Reed.

Special performances will take place at select nightclubs and restaurants throughout the city on Friday night, and there is a Brown Bag Lunch concert to be performed by Brent Anderson and Maggie Brown on the Vidalia Riverfront at noon Friday, to kick off the Blues Fest weekend. For more information, contact Eric Glatzer at 601-660-2792.

Yet another reason to visit Monmouth Plantation this spring.
