What better way to close out Summer and move into Fall than the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival?
Great Music! Great Food! and lots of fun had by all.Â I didn’t get to the outside stages much, asÂ managing the Folklore Hall Stage kept me busy, but everyone who I talked with was awestruck by the quality of the performances and the overall Festival.
The Center for Southern Folklore, producers of the Festival, took things in stride on Saturday night, moving headliner, Bobby Rush, inside to the Folklore Hall on very short notice.Â Rush played to an SRO audience, who were all quite pleased.
Many thanks to all the sponsors, volunteers, performers and Center Staff who make this one of Memphis’ outstanding.
I set up a flickr group for Festival pictures (slideshow of all photos), so if you can share your good photos from the weekend.
Here’s a little slide show of some of my selected photos from the Folklore Hall Stage:
