Oxford Blues Fest This Weekend

12 Jul

This weekend, July 16 to 18, the Oxford Blues Fest will start at Irie on Friday, progress to the Public Library and around The Square at various venues on Saturday, and finish off with a bang at Foxfire Ranch on Sunday.

In addition to popular musicians such as Robert Belfour, Terry “Harmonica” Bean, Kenny Brown, Cadillac Funk and Mary “Action” Jackson, organizer Darryl Parker didn’t leave out the all-important food element…

On the second day of the event, starting at noon at the Public library, Gregg Johnson from the Ole Miss Blues Archives will present an hour-long History of the Blues. Papa John’s is donating pizza to be sold during the event with 1/2 of all the proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Club of Oxford and the rest going to the Public Library.

The final Sunday event at Foxfire Ranch, which begins at 5:00 p.m. and lasts until midnight will, of course, include plenty of food, music and drinks!
