Bentonia Blues Festival 2012 - The 40th Anniversary!!
The Bentonia Blues Festival began in 1972 on a farm just up the road from the world-famous Blue Front Cafe. Since that time, the festival has grown from an attendance of a couple hundred, to ten thousand in recent years. With this increased attendance comes the need for more space, and since nothing says festival like a great big open field full of live music, Mr. Jimmy "Duck" Holmes has decided to take the festival back to where it began - on the Holmes Farm! Don't miss it!
Related events are also being planned for Thursday & Friday nights, June 14 & 15, at the Blue Front Cafe in downtown Bentonia, including the annual Unwind After 5! coordinated by the Yazoo County CVB. To perform in the historic Blue Front Cafe on either of these nights, sign up for the open mic! Call Mr. Holmes at 662-528-1900.
