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.Â The 2 days are stuffed with music, dance, food, cooking demonstrations, storytellers, folksy vendors, and a lot of fun for the whole family.Â Something for everyone’s taste: Blues, Rock-a-Billy, Soul, Gospel, Rock and more. See the entire SCHEDULE HERE.Â Oh, and did I mention…?Â 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.
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.Â Come by and say hello.
