Ken Murphy & Scott Barretta will be signing copies of Mississippi: State of Blues.
“This book’s subtitle is intentionally, in blues fashion, a double
entendre. On the one hand, it offers an assessment of the contemporary
Mississippi blues scene—its musicians, festivals, venues, fans, and holy
sites—in both image and prose. And on the other hand, it alludes to
the fact that over one hundred years after its emergence, the blues
remains inextricably connected in the public mind with Mississippi.”
-from Scott Barretta’s essay featured in Mississippi: State of Blues.
