Shane Speal, Cedric Burnside and Justin Johnson among others will be playing at the Clarksdale,MS Blues festival October 14th through the 16th.

I plan to be there and hope all the Ms group members can attend and meet each other as well.

Glad to see that there is a cbg group for Mississipians (even us transplants). I live in Starkville and have been building cbgs for a couple of years. Would really like to get together with other builders in the state. I don't play worth a crap, but I really enjoy building them.

Welcome, Michael.  Glad to have you aboard.

I had the pleasure of playing in Ocean Springs at the Mississippi Songwriter's Festival in 2014.  Beautiful city.
