Nothing goes together better than blues and the Mississippi River.
Join the crowd at WEVL’s 24th annual Blues on the Bluff concert at the National Ornamental Metal Museum on July 21st from 6-11 PM. Taking the stage will be Lightnin’ Malcom and Marquell Kimbrough, Elmo & the Shades, and Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition.
Central BBQ will be present to sell their delicious barbecue, with all proceeds donated to WEVL, Memphis’ beloved volunteer-based radio station.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Blues on the Bluff is one of WEVL’s liveliest fundraisers. Get your lawn chairs and blankets out, and buy your tickets now. Don’t forget to bring friends!
Mark Twain famously named the view of the River from the Metal Museum (then a Marine hospital) as the finest view of the Mississippi between Huck Finn’s Cairo and New Orleans. You won’t want to miss the opportunity later this month to listen to expert blues musicians play while the sun sets, very appropriately, on the Mississippi – the river that gave the blues a home.
