The Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival

Frank's Creations at Da Biscuit!Once again, it's our annual journey down south for the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival - it'll always be the King Biscuit to us!. If you've ever wanted to truly capture the feeling that being down in the Delta can give, this fest delivers! Nestled in legendary Blues geography, there's a tapestry of blues that streches back to the roots. Robert Johnson, the 'Crossroads', juke joints like Red's, the Delta Blues Museum, 'Sunshine' Sonny Payne and KFFA radio, Cat Head delta blues and folk art, Tent City, USA, and so much more. A wealth of blues history and music will surround you, but you'll have to experience for yourself just what turns visitors into life-long 'biscuitheads'!

Our friend Bob Corritore is attending the 'Biscuit', and on Saturday, October 6, 2007, to celebrate their new release on Blue Witch Records, Travelin' The Dirt Road, Dave Riley and Bob Corritore will host a CD release party in conjunction with the Arkansas Blues & Heritage Festival at the Delta Cultural Center Annex, 223 Cherry Street, Helena, AR, 72342, and admission is free! There will be a one-hour performance starting at 3pm, followed by a CD signing. Thanks to Terry Buckalew (from the Delta Cultural Center) for his work there behind the scenes. Then, on Sunday, Bob will have the honor of attending Pinetop's homecoming celebration at Hopson’s Plantation in Clarksdale, Mississippi. There is a big commissary, which has been converted into a bar, and once again, this year the host band is Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, including many special guests such as Pinetop Perkins (of course), Bob Margolin, and many more.

While you're in Clarksdale on the 7th, stop on by the Cat Head Mini Juke Joint Festival, and make a day of it! Make sure and tell them all STLBlues sent you! Here's a peek at last year's King Biscuit!
