Lineup announced for the main stage at the Mighty Mississippi Music Festival - October 3-5 in Greenville

The Mighty Mississippi Music Festival  in Greenville is one of the cornerstone events of Bridging the Blues, particularly as it incorporates the Highway 61 Blues Festival, whose legacy is represented in the Highway 61 Stage. The festival takes place in the beautiful Warfield Point Park, which is situated on eight acres between the Mississippi River and the levee several miles south of Greenville. Last year many attendees camped on site.

In addition to headliners Dr. John and Gov't Mule, the main stage will also feature the New Orleans brass band-influenced Big Sam's Funky Nation, country artists Deanna Carter and Steve Azar, Austin-based rockers Band of Heathens, Alvin Youngblood Hart's electric trio Muscle Theory, North Mississippi's Shannon McNally, Cedric Burnside, and Jimbo Mathus, and local favorites Jason Fratesi and the Dirt Road Jam Band and Rob Mortimer's Good Paper. Hart, Mathus, and veteran bluesman L.C. Ulmer are also performing on the Highway 61 stage (lineup below).

Last year was the debut of the Mighty Mississippi Music Festival, and many fans were so impressed with both the music and amenities that they immediately bought tickets for this year's event.
