Blue Mother Tupelo at Mississippi Songwriters Festival

Ocean Springs, Mississippi


Come enjoy Blue Mother Tupelo's songwriters Ricky & Micol Davis, and many other fantastic songwriters at the Mississippi Songwriters Festival in beautiful downtown Ocean Springs!

In 2010, a group of local Mississippi Gulf Coast friends were jammin’ (as musicians often do) and lamented that there was no vehicle to allow songwriters to share their original music… and the Mississippi Songwriters’ Festival was born! The Festival has grown into an impressive showcase of talent – including 15 to 20 professional songwriters (many from Nashville) who generously share their work by playing at a variety of local venues ​or teaching their craft in various workshops. Held in the picturesque art-filled city of Ocean Springs, ​the Mississippi Songwriters’ Festival is a “feast for the ears”. ​True to the mission of remaining a non-profit organization, there is never a cover charge to enjoy the shows.

Please NOTE: The location of this year's picnic is in Coldwater, MS.

ABOUT the picnic: This picnic is certainly an Otha Turner family tradition, an old time Mississippi tradition ... BMT is honored to have made music & jammed with friends - at our friends, the Turners' farm for several years at this nonstop down home foot-stompin' picnic filled with great food, great folks and great music and we're all looking forward to doing it again! Past performers include: T-Model Ford, RL Burnside, Sam Carr, "Big Jack" Johnson, Kenny Brown, Robert Belfour, Terry "Harmonica" Bean, Cedric & Duwayne Burnside, Kenny Kimbrough, Rev. John Wilkins, "Slick" Ballinger, Steve "Lightnin'" Malcolm, Blind Mississippi Morris, Big Daddy, The North Mississippi Allstars, Blue Mother Tupelo and of course, the late great Otha Turner and his granddaughter, Sharde Thomas & The Rising Star Fife & Drum Band. The gathering of friends and the music is always fantastic and the catfish & goat bar-b-q are delicious! Ice-cold beer to top things off - it don't get no better than this! This year, the Turner family will carry on in the traditional picnic style with Otha's original Rising Star Fife and Drum and his granddaughter, Sharde Thomas, playing the fife and his grandsons playing the drums as well as countless other Hill Country and Delta Blues musicians. Blue Mother Tupelo will be jammin' there with others. At this picnic, there's never a schedule for performers and one NEVER knows who'll be performing for this event. But the music is nonstop and this is always guaranteed to be an old-fashioned Mississippi boogie. Y'all come!

About Otha Turner:

"Renowned for his picnic parties Mr. Turner - who played a homemade bamboo cane fife or wooden flute and spent much of his life as a sharecropper and subsistence farmer - was a living link to rural Blues and fife-and-drum pre-blues that extended well into the 19th Century."
