Music weekends coming up
The second annual Bridging the Blues (Sept. 27 – Oct. 13), a project created by organizations in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee to celebrate the cultural heritage of the Delta region, has expanded this year to include a third weekend.
Bridging the Blues offers music fans a packed calendar, highlighted by the venerable King Biscuit Blues Festival (Oct. 10-12) in Helena, Arkansas, and the new Mighty Mississippi Music Festival (Oct. 4-6) in Greenville, Mississippi, which incorporates the decade-old Highway 61 Blues Festival, formerly held in nearby Leland.
