21st Annual Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival
Saturday, May 10th
Festival site on Stagecoach Road, 300 yards off Washington Highway, north of Thomson, GA
The event is held each year to bring great American roots and blues music and musicians to the rural South, as well as pay tribute to country blues legend McTell, a Thomson native son, born and buried in the Happy Valley area of McDuffie County.
The small town feel and exceptional quality of the music presented year in and year out makes the McTell Festival a special event indeed. The organizers strive to feature artists who offer the best in American music, focusing on the styles of Americana, folk, gospel, rock, blues and all its variations with musicians that our smaller market can support — music played by folks at the top of their game.
Featuring: Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, St.Paul and the Broken Bones, The Campbell Brothers, Tony Furtado, and Sugar Ray and the BlueTones.
Tickets, which are $30 advance and $40 day of, go on sale March 1
