Voices of Mississippi



An immersive multimedia experience and concert event that celebrates the people and art of the southern blues, gospel, and storytelling traditions.

Feb 04, 2023. Starting: 08:00 PM

 Based on the 2019 Grammy-winning box set of the same name, "Voices of Mississippi," the program features musical performances by notable Mississippi artists, including Bobby Rush, Sharde Thomas, and Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars. The show includes fascinating personal accounts as well as archival film and images from Dr. William Ferris. 


A historian with a proudly egalitarian lens, Ferris studied Mississippi as a slice of humanity in which everyone and everything was interconnected—and in which the beating heart of broader cultural traditions could be found in some of the most overlooked figures and places. From the 1960s through the 1990s, Ferris captured an invaluable archive of cultural and musical treasures, and much of that art and humanity will be shared in this unique concert experience. 


With a broad array of photos, film clips, stories and live music, Voices of Mississippi paints a powerful picture of a unique time and place that remains an essential piece of the American cultural fabric.
