Don’t miss a minute of the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival

Bobby Rush

Bobby Rush - one of the Headliners at Memphis Music and Heritage Festival

Every year, I look forward to Labor Day Weekend, because the Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day (September 4 and 5 this year) are filled with one of the country’s most interesting Festivals, the free Memphis Music and Heritage Festival, produced for decades by the Center for Southern Folklore.  The 2 days are stuffed with music, dance, food, cooking demonstrations, storytellers, folksy vendors, and a lot of fun for the whole family.  Something for everyone’s taste: Blues, Rock-a-Billy, Soul, Gospel, Rock and more. See the entire SCHEDULE HERE.  Oh, and did I mention…?  It’s FREE.

This year’s festival is dedicated to the late Jim Dickinson, Memphis music legend, perennial performer at the Festival and avid supporter of the Center.Jim Dickinson 2010 MMHF Portrait

To help keep the festival free, please consider making a small donation to the Center while you are there.

I will be managing the Comcast Folklore Hall Stage.  Come by and say hello.

Nice Video tribute to Jim Dickinson

Jim Dickinson was always a good friend of the Center for Southern Folklore, and this year the Center is dedicating the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival to the Memphis music legend.

Jim O’Donnell put together this video highlighting Dickinson’s many appearances at the Festival:

See you all at the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival, Main and Peabody Place, September 4 and 5.

Poster Art for MMHF- a tribute to Jim Dickinson

When I posted about the Center for Southern Folklore‘s 2010 Memphis Music and Heritage Festival the other day, I didn’t have the poster art, honoring Memphis legend, Jim Dickinson.  Here is the poster art, by Tennessee artist Gray.
