THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 30-JULY 1, 2018

The Jus Blues Music Awards will take place July 31st through August 5th  in Tunica Mississippi.  This Weekend on BluesTime In The City, we talk with the Executive Director of the Jus Blues Music Foundation about the affair and he presented us with a plethora  of information and activities that will take place this year.

Among the new activities are the Blues City Tours to the B.B. King Museum on July 31st, with a stop at the Club Ebony.  Scheduled to perform at Club Ebony is Nellie Tiger Travis.  He also informed us that Ms Nellie Tiger Travis will shoot a video at Club Ebony of her performance.

Mr. Mitchell also revealed to us that there will be a special tribute to the late Denise LaSalle on August 2nd, with special performances by Karen Wolfe, Toni Green, Chick Rodgers and Ms Jody.

Additional events will include the Historical Conference, Book Signings, The Songwriters Clinic, The Technology Conference and The Jus Blues Juke Joint Party will cap the event off with a special performance by Grady Champion.

The Jus Blues Music Foundation is an organization that recognizes those artists that work so hard at their craft, but never get the recognition for it.  Mr. Mitchell and his group seek out these people and honor them with well-deserved awards.
