Blues Conference to take place during Bridging the Blues

Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi is inaugurating the International Conference on the Blues on October 6-7. The lineup will include Grammy award winner Alvin Youngblood Hart and blues scholar Robert Santelli, the executive director of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Earlier this year there was a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a new Grammy Museum on the Delta State campus.

Here's Alvin Youngblood Hart performing "Pony Blues" by Charley Patton, who lived on the Dockery Plantation less than ten miles from the Delta State campus.
