Cat Head Mini Blues Fest - FREE!

Natchez-based drummer, harmonica player and vocalist Hezekiah Early was born on October 7, 1934 on a farm in the community of Anna’s Bottom, located about a dozen miles north of Natchez adjacent to the Mississippi River. Some of first music that Early heard as a young man was that of local fife and drum groups, which consisted of a fife player, two snare drums, and a bass player. His father, Wilson, played fife, and Early learned to play all the instruments himself. He continued playing in such bands until 1970, and says that he would like to revive the tradition.

Southern Indiana-bred singer-guitarist Reverend Peyton is the bigger-than-life frontman of Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David “Honeyboy” Edwards.

Leo “Bud” Welch Sr. was born in Sabougla, Mississippi in 1932. Bud picked up a guitar for the first time in 1945. By 1947 at age 15, Bud could play well enough to perform publically and garnered the blessing of many elder guitar players. Bud was offered an audition by BB King but could not afford the trip to Memphis. Leo does not believe that Blues is the devil’s music but a way of expressing the highs and lows of one’s life through song. Leo’s debut album “Sabougla Voices” was released January 7, 2014 just two months before his 82nd birthday and his sophomore album “I Don’t Prefer No Blues” was released on March 24, 2015 just two days after his 83rd birthday.

“Walker T Ryan Just him and his guitar. Walker T is the real deal. A bluesman, a Delta bluesman! He began as a Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly old school folk singer. Then he saw Son House! A lover of old Rock and Roll and country music. He knows hundreds of songs. He works as a solo and makes it look easy, but there’s years of craft and heart and experience and compassion behind his on-stage simplicity. He’s played thousands of gigs for all kinds of people, in places most of us only read about, and he’s entertained them all. Just him and his guitar.”

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Duwayne Burnside is one of 14 children born to legendary North Mississippi musician R.L. Burnside and his wife, Alice. He has been a frequent performer with the North Mississippi Allstars since the early 1990s, when that group, fronted by Luther and Cody Dickinson, formed. The young Burnside learned his first few guitar licks and chords from his father, but proved a quick study and soon began playing with local club owner Junior Kimbrough and the Soul Blues Boys. Growing up in Holly Springs, he was close to Memphis, and as soon as he was able to get to Memphis, he did, and soon had the chance to sit in with Little Jimmy King, Albert King, B.B. King, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and others.

The traditional blues trio Harp, Hart & Bones consists of ‘Fast Eddie’ Consolmagno on harmonica and slide guitar, Bill ‘Dock’ Hart on resonator guitar, and Randy ‘da Bones Man’ Seppala on drums and folk percussion. Harp, Hart & Bones (H2B) draw their material largely from the blues tradition that dates to the 1920s and extends barely into the early 1950s. It was a time when bands of two or three people were common, playing on record, at dance parties, traveling shows and clubs. Unlike the urban blues and rock music that followed, it was a study in the essentials...acoustic-based music set against steady and syncopated rhythms with music responsibilities shared evenly to create one sound.

Shacksdale Motel is helping to preserve this rich history by capturing the essence of a sharecropper shack. We take pride in re-using and re-purposing the pieces of the Delta architecture that would be lost to the elements. We have removed the cypress boards from collapsing shacks, pulled the nails, washed and used these planks for our interiors. We have salvaged bead-board and tin, kitchen sinks and claw-foot bathtubs, down to genuine house-blocks supporting our foundations.

People are drawn to Wes Lee’s personal brand of blended traditions and many styles, they know that music does not come from the head, but from a deeper place. And they know that this music moves them. They see it—no, they feel it—when they are in the presence of Wes Lee performing at any of his various venues. They might not be able to tell you exactly what it is about Wes Lee’s music that touches them, but they can tell you that they like it. Whether the person is caught by his self-taught guitar skills of string bending inspired by some of the forefathers of blues, or if his classic themes of loss, women, and drinking pull them in, a person simply feels the passion that drives the man to do what he does.

Where: Red's Lounge

Red's Lounge? It's the definition of a real-deal Mississippi juke joint. Don't expect to be spoiled with amenities. All you need is a been-there-done-that owner, some beers as big as your head and some "live" blues you'll never forget. (Oh, and MAYBE something out front on the grill.) This is how blues became blues... how the music grew up out of the cotton fields and onto a round piece of vinyl. Speaking of which, the building itself was called "Levine's Music Center" back in the day, and it's where Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm bought the instruments that played the first rock 'n roll song. Yeah, Red's is the real thing for sure...
