Memphis Gold at the Chicago Blues Festival
Stackhouse Recording Company artist Memphis Gold finally has a slot at the Chicago Blues Festival at the Pepsi Front Porch stage on Sunday, June 12, at 2:15 p.m. He will be accompanied by the Billy Branch band. He is planning on bringing copies of his new CD, "Pickin' in High Cotton," which leads off with the sure-to-controversial "How You Gonna Play the Blues."
I will also be on two 11:30 a.m. panels at the festival's Mississippi Juke Joint stage: a Robert Johnson panel on Friday (with members of Johnson's family participating) and a Mississippi Blues Trail panel on Saturday, with Alex Thomas, Scott Barretta, and Rip Daniels.
