4:00 pm

Mohead & Mograss

Mohead has opened or played with everyone from Bob Dylan, Little Feat and Robert Randolph, to Ray Wylie Hubbard, Billy Joe Shaver and Sam Bush. After years of touring, Mohead quietly turned his attention to family life raising two boys and began pursuing his other passion for food, opening his own “funky fine dining” restaurant called Kathryn’s which he still operates. Thankfully his first passion for music has drawn him back in. Mohead is doing what he started out doing, playing his southern Americana style of original music.

Terry Harmonica Bean

One of Mississippi's hidden treasures: a contemporary hill country bluesman, lifelong resident of Pontotoc, who has created his own distinctive version of the harp-blowing, guitar-grooving one-man band. Although he's long past the dues-paying stage, Bean has played with some of the most important bluesmen to come out of Mississippi in the past two decades.

Where: Red's Lounge

Red's Lounge? It's the definition of a real-deal Mississippi juke joint. Don't expect to be spoiled with amenities. All you need is a been-there-done-that owner, some beers as big as your head and some "live" blues you'll never forget. (Oh, and MAYBE something out front on the grill.) This is how blues became blues... how the music grew up out of the cotton fields and onto a round piece of vinyl. Speaking of which, the building itself was called "Levine's Music Center" back in the day, and it's where Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm bought the instruments that played the first rock 'n roll song. Yeah, Red's is the real thing for sure...

Lala Crag and Dean Boike

Keyboardist/singer/songwriter LaLa Craig got her start in her hometown of Oceanside, CA, performing with her family's country band at the tender age of 4. Taking a turn at dabbling for decades in every style imaginable, LaLa found her true calling when the blues spoke to her at the age of 33.
