“If Memphis is a genre, this is it!” proclaims American Blues Scene of the band. Their self-titled debut album is a breath of fresh air with its own unique blend of gospel-tinged R&B vocals, roots/blues-based guitar work and soul-inspired songwriting.

The concert and fair are free to the public and are held the second Saturday of each month, April to September. Visitors can also enjoy the “Cherry Street Classics” car and motorcycle show, as well as food, shopping and crazy kids’ contests up and down the street.

For more information on the event and on how to become a volunteer or vendor, please call 870-338-3300.
