Here’s a little background on the festival if you aren’t familiar…
In 2007, Chris Johnson created the Deep Blues Festival to celebrate the outsider and alternative blues and blues influenced music that he felt deserved more attention. He established connections with hundreds of bands from around the world while making a name for the Deep Blues Festival on the international circuit. Fans have travelled from across the country and from around the world to support and attend the festival.
This event started near the twin cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) with a 1-day event showcasing 18 bands. Every year, the event has evolved, and in 2014 the festival moved south to Clarksdale MS. That is where we come in!! The reins have been handed, the crown bestowed…and we are honoured to carry the torch of Chris Johnson’s vision & festivities.
Chris says: “I’m no longer the driving force behind this event, but it’s never been about me. The musicians, the fans, venues and promoters will continue to support this great music.” We argue that it is about Chris Johnson, or the passion and dedication that he gave tirelessly (until he got tired), and we are bringing that momentum into the coming festival.
Benefactor tickets are on sale now! Check out the perks of being supporting this festival (first chance at purchasing tickets, booking shacks, and access to the special Benefactor’s Ball show!) – on top of earning our infinite appreciation.
We look forward to seeing y’all in October 2017 in Clarksdale, MS…
