    Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule are the Saturday night headliners. Many other good acts as well this year!

    That's a good lineup. We don't get many blues festivals in these parts. Couple a year at best.

    Just wondering if this festival has anything to do with Canadian King Biscuit Boy or is just coincidence. He is a well known blues musician.

    No, it has to do with a long time running radio program in Arkansas. It was sponsored by King Biscuit Flour Company.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    This Blues Festival is held in the Fall in Helena, Arkansas, which is known as the real home of the blues (close to Memphis).
    Many good players will be there every year in spite of the place being a forgotten city in the Delta.
    It has not only the history of the blues, but also some good Civil War history too.
    A few years back, there were photos of Robert Plant walking around by himself just chillin'..................the Brits take a real shine to the place.
    Just a few short miles from Helena is the location of the birthplace of Levon Helm................Chicken Scratch (Marvell) Arkansas.

    You can read about the festival here:

    If you've ever see the movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" the "Pappy O'Daniel Flour Hour" radio show in the movie is in honor of the King Biscuit Radio Show.

    You can still listen to the show every day of you're in the Helena area or online at http://www.kffa.com/
