It’s also conveniently located by great rafting and fishing spots, giving any outdoor enthusiast many options to choose from. Being such an incredible location, there are many locations to find lodging and vacation rentals, making vacation planning a breeze.
Last year’s annual event lasted two-days, each featuring a lineup of newer artists, capped off with a performance by a well-known headliner. Saturday featured Dragondeer, Honey Island Swamp Band, Southern Avenue, Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, and was finished off by the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. The KWSB has released multiple albums, and is a popular blues group beloved by many.
Sunday also showcased a star, but started the day off with performances by Fuse Worship, Kara Grainger, the Nick Moss Band, Vintage Trouble, and finally a performance by the North Mississippi Allstars. The Allstars are made up of two brothers, Luther and Cody Dickinson. The pair have combined to create several albums, and are currently on on tour, playing at several venues across the United States. The duo were quite a hit last year, expect the Grand County Blues Society to work some more magic this year!
