The North Mississippi Allstars and Rebirth Brass Band, along with special guest Cedric Burnside, will perform live in concert Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 7:30 p.m. at the Bologna Performing Arts Center (BPAC) at Delta State University as part of the national Shake & Holla tour. The concert is locally sponsored by the International Conference on the Blues.
Shake & Holla is a brand-new tour that showcases foot-stomping Mississippi “hill country” blues and the funky, syncopated sounds of New Orleans brass. Touring together for the first time ever, the Grammy-nominated and Blues Music Award-winning North Mississippi Allstars will be joined by the legendary Rebirth Brass Band in a musical celebration of two great southern musical traditions.
Steeped deeply in their own traditions, both artists also are part of the vanguard of blues and soul music. Appearing with them on this tour is blues guitarist, vocalist, and drummer Cedric Burnside, a Grammy-nominated artist in his own right, as well as the grandson of legendary Fat Possum recording artist RL Burnside. For one special night, these three artists will be playing their own favorite selections as well as collaborating through the show on an array of great songs, exploring the musical connection between the Mississippi Delta on Bourbon Street…right down Highway 61.
Tickets start at $25.00 and are on sale at the BPAC Ticket Office, by phone at (662) 846-4626 or online www.bolognapac.com.
