About Beale Street Music Festival

 

The three-day Beale Street Music Festival is truely the kick-off occasion for Memphis in May, a month-lengthy, multi-competition event that has been going for walks for forty years and includes events like World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Great American River Run 5K and Half-Marathon. Though it’s no longer a blues competition consistent, it might be impossible to ignore the wealthy musical historical past of BSMF’s setting.

A former hangout of the likes of Louis Armstrong, Memphis Minnie, B.B. King, and Rufus Thomas, the blues way of life that grew up on Beale Street developed right into a genre all its personal, known fittingly as “Memphis Blues”. Numerous songs which include “Beale Street Blues” by W.C. Handy and “Furry Sings the Blues” via Joni Mitchell have name-dropped the vicinity in their lyrics, making it best appropriate that a music festival be staged right here. Add in the iconic Mississippi River entire with passing steamboats as a real-lifestyles backdrop, and you’ve were given a festival that’s rooted in history and full of some of the fine modern track round.
