A Gulf Coast Juneteenth: Featuring Bobby Rush

We are so excited to bring you our annual Juneteenth blues and creole festival featuring Grammy award-winning blues legend Bobby Rush! This story telling bluesman boasts gritty, sensuous vocals and impressive harmonica chops that wow audiences wherever he goes! After decades of tearing up the chitlin’ circuit on a nightly basis with his sweaty, no-holds-barred funkfests, Bobby has thoroughly broken through to the mainstream. He won a long-overdue 2017 Grammy for his spectacular album Porcupine Meat and consistently tours the globe as a headliner. This revered legend, well past 80 years of age, is bigger and badder and bolder than ever.
