DBF HQ is buzzing with excitement over this announcement! We are wildly fired up with the news that Nikki Hill will be appearing right here in Clarksdale, Mississippi this October for Deep Blues Festival.  In our #teamdbf travels criss-crossing the nation, with our ears always at the ready to receive exciting sounds, we encountered Nikki Hill in Oakland, CA sometime in 2016.  The wish-list turned into reality and Nikki Hill and her band are winding their way up to the delta this fall!

If you haven’t already been wearing out her 2015 release, Heavy Hearts, Hard Fists, go on an buy it on iTunes here.  If you want a preview of what you can expect to see in October, check out her videos on her website! Hill is a North Carolina-bred, New Orleans-based punk-loving, soul-shredding, blues-having, rocking and rolling woman with gut, grit, ferocity, and passion.  Praise for Nikki Hill elicits references ranging from Etta James, Chuck Berry, and Tina Turner to The Cramps and AC/DC.  Curious, intrigued, and excited to be enthralled?  We are!

Don’t forget to buy your Deep Blues Festival weekend passes online in our shop here. Make your fall plans now, and plan a weekend in Clarksdale, Mississippi for some real, deep blues!  You don’t want to miss a weekend full of heavy, alternative blues in the heart of it all – at the Crossroads.  Make your deals with whoever you gotta, and come on down to Clarksdale!
