Upcoming Fundraiser

On September 3, 2015, the MZMF is sponsoring a benefit concert to repair and raise the sunken and sullen grave marker of Eugene Powell, aka Sonny Boy Nelson, at the Blind Pig in Oxford, Mississippi.  Local-based musicians Eric Deaton, Davis Coen, and the eminent Tyler Keith will perform at the event.

“Sonny Boy Nelson’s greatness,” Keith asserted, “and his influence owe much to his knowledge of all types of songs from blues to novelty to dance numbers…It’s important to celebrate this tradition. It’s always good to have a place blues nerds, drunken white boys and those seeking some sort of mojo, can get drunk and leave an empty bottle of liquor.”
