Kentuck Festival – Next Weekend!

Next weekend is one of my *favorite* weekends of the year! It’s Kentuck!

I’m *really* looking forward to seeing:

Music:
Willie King – blues, blues, blues. Oh yes. The Alabama Blues Project is trying to get a lot more attention put toward Alabama-born or -based blues musians (W.C. Handy – father of the blues, ‘Big Mama’ Thornton, Clarence Carter, etc), including a program they’re doing to get the blues into schools.
Red Stick Ramblers
Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas

Quilts:
Chris Clark
Hallie O’Kelley
Yvonne Wells

Other:
Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr with York Show Prints

Art:
Alpha Andrews
Butch Anthony
Lonnie Holley
Jimmy Lee Sudduth

…and LOTS and LOTS of others. If you can get to Northport, AL (Tuscaloosa) next weekend, do! See you there!
