The Delta Cultural Center is gearing up for this year’s King Biscuit Blues Festival with a great lineup at their Front Porch Blues Bash stage, located in the Miller Annex at 223 Cherry St.

Performers include local favorites, as well as artists new to the Front Porch stage. Musical styles vary, with something for all audiences. Headliners this year are award-winning artists Charles Wilson and Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith.

The Front Porch Blues Bash is free and open to the public. The performances have become extremely popular with blues fest visitors because the Miller Annex provides an intimate indoor venue where the audience and the artists can interact with each other.

Things get started on Thursday, Oct. 5, with a blues jam from noon to 6 p.m. Jams often prove to be highly entertaining due to their unpredictable nature.

Music begins at noon on Friday, Oct. 6, with the Billy Gibson Band returning to the front porch stage. Artists Lucious Spiller, Watermelon Slim, the Robert “Bilbo” Walker Band, and Quon Willis will provide the afternoon’s entertainment, with headliner Charles Wilson and his band wrapping things up from 5 to 6 p.m.

Saturday’s lineup is equally impressive, with Austin Walkin’ Cane, Charlotte Taylor and Gypsy Rain, Mark “Muleman” Massey, and the Willie Cobbs Band, performing from noon to 3:45 p.m. Grammy award-winning drummer Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith and his band bring their outstanding brand of blues to the stage at 4 p.m., and the music concludes with the ever-popular Front Porch Youth Jam at 5 p.m.
