Music festival raises funds for evacuees
It didn’t showcase the big names of the Beale Street Music Festival. Nor did it feature many of the attractions of small town events such as the Tunica Rivergate Festival.
But on Saturday, the High Water Music Festival left an indelible mark on a community suffering from the effects of the rising flood waters of the Mighty Mississippi – the displaced residents of the Tunica Cutoff.
“Attendance-wise, I think we sold about 700 wrist bands,” said Tunica businessman and former Nashville music insider John Mohead, organizer of the festival. “It was mainly a local turnout, but we did have some folks here from DeSoto County, as well as Clarksdale and Coahoma County.”
