(MS, TN, AR) – Bridging the Blues is a way to connect live music and related events in three areas that have a Mississippi River bridge in common, but it also refers to different types of music that are bridged by the blues, and these include almost every genre of popular music.
The idea originated from wanting to give visitors in our tri-state region a way to find live music in between two main weekend festivals: the Mighty Mississippi Music Festival in Greenville, Mississippi, on September 30-October 2, and the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas, on October 5-8.
And when you’re talking about music, you certainly can’t leave out Memphis, so the idea was born to include these regions to plan and promote smaller venues as well as these festivals. This multi-week collaboration includes everything from exhibits, conferences, street festivals and intimate club performances.
