Hill Country Picnic scheduled June 25-26
Now in its fifth year, the North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic will be held June 25-26, off Highway 349 in Potts Camp.
This year’s festival lineup features Hill Country musicians Kenny Brown, Duwayne Burnside, The North Mississippi Allstars, Jimbo Mathus, Rising Star Fife and Drum Band and many more. The two-day festival takes place on an 1,100-acre site in the rolling hills of Marshall County and will run from noon until after midnight both days.
The festival is the brainchild of Potts Camp resident and acclaimed bluesman Kenny Brown, who has witnessed first-hand the worldwide appeal and influence of Hill Country Blues through his long tenure with R.L. Burnside and travels with his own band.
“We’ve got a great lineup, and we hope people will come out to enjoy the music, workshop, food and camping, Brown said.
Ticket information is available on the festival website – www.nmshillcountrypicnic.com.
