So, how do you know about the Helena/West Helena blues festival each october ? From around here ?
Yes it is said Memphis is the home of the blues. WC Handy brought the "camp songs" to the city where they found fertile ground. Memphis is the birth place of the blues but they were conceived in the levy camps when the Mississippi river was being levied.
Memphis was a great city that will always have a special place in my heart. Much of my life and my formitable years were spent there. Detriot was a great city also and that is where Memphis is headed to fast.
