Burdine Blues & Greens Festival Website is Live
The theme for this years is "Let's Get It On!" 'cause that's what we're doing and this is a great time of year to be in the South. While we're all standing around, waiting to go hunting, we may as well be doing what we do best ... throwin' a party ... a DELTA PARTY!
The idea came from our Sunday get to togethers, after the Juke Joint Festival. It just kept on growing. The party kept on rollin' and the Grain Bin, at the Shackdale Motel, came alive with great musicians just Sittin' Around playing music together.
We don't know were they all came from, but the parking lot got full and the streets lined with cars on Sunday evening, when the party was supposed to be winding down. The hog butt we were cookin', disappeared in no time. One thing was for certain, nobody wanted to leave and everyone wanted to know when the next party was. We all knew it right then, it was time to start planning a new party.
The Blues and Greens Festival is a home grown delta family party. The kind we're all used to 'round here. It's an opportunity for the famous and the infamous to get together and just see what's gonna happen.
We created this website to spread the word about what we're doing' here and help others participate. We'll have a few stories along the way as we promote this and future events. So ya'll check it out and come on out, to the FIRST Hank Burdine's Blues and Greens Festival.
