The MZMF at the Bentonia Blues Festival

Click HERE to see the event on Facebook

The Mt. Zion Memorial Fund will have a booth setup at the Bentonia Blues Festival in mid-June to answer questions, distribute material, and solicit donations to help us maintain the graves of blues musicians in abandoned cemeteries as well as mark the grave of Belton Sutherland, of Camden, MS. In addition, we plan to conduct some maintenance on the existing markers of blues musicians buried in Bentonia and search a few cemeteries for the existing markers of the surrounding area's more obscure students of the Bentonia School of Blues. This video explains some of our past endeavors as well as some of our plans once we get to Yazoo...enjoy and we'll see you in June...
