On the Scene: Highlights from the Center for Southern Folklore's Music & Heritage Festival, Day 2



Day two of the Center for Southern Folklore's Music and Heritage Festival was all about missing acts I wanted to catch. Star & Micey were finished by the time I reached the Tennessee Arts Stage and the crowds were so dense at the Center's smaller, music store stage that I couldn't get close to The Last Chance Jug Band or Son of Mudboy. But one of the nice things about this festival is that if you miss something you want to see you'll very likely stumble across something even more interesting. To wit: The Memphis Klezmer Orchestra.

Bo-Jack Killingsworth has played drums and guitar for "Rockin' Daddy" Eddie Bond for years. He's recently taken up piano and when Bond asked him to take the lead Killingsworth cranked out a great cover of "Drinking Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee."

Reba Russell's Blues Band is always a crowd-pleaser.
