On Saturday February 7, at 2:30pm Mississippi Heat takes the stage. This is one of the most successful Chicago Blues bands to come out of the windy city, traditional blues with a unique sound. Their music is traditional because it is steeped in Chicago’s golden sounds of the 1950’s: Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Rogers, Sonny Boy Williamsons, Junior Wells and George Smith.

The Saturday night at 7:30, PIX favorite Larry McCray will take the stage to close out the end of the first Winter Blues Festival.
