10th anniversary of the North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic -- June 26-27
The North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic salutes the distinctive traditions of North Mississippi, notably the music of elders including R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, and Otha Turner. Each year many of their relatives and former bandmates gather to celebrate and perpetuate the tradition.
The festival takes place at a rustic outdoor venue in Waterford, off of Highway 7 between Oxford and Holly Springs. There are also harmonica and guitar camps on the day before the festival. Below is the detailed schedule of events
