Pinetop Perkins celebration at Hopson Plantation this Saturday

This Thursday the Blues Music Awards will take place at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, and a lot of attendees will be heading down to Clarksdale, where there will be many musical events this weekend. One is a fundraiser for the Pinetop Perkins Foundation, which also hosts one of the final events of Bridging the Blues. Legendary pianist Perkins lived on Hopson in the 1940s, and visited many times in recent decades prior to his death in 2011 at age 97.

The Foundation will also be holding its annual Master Class workshop at Hopson this July
