Live Music on the Course

The Blues were born in Mississippi and they are also a big part of the race! In 2014, runners and spectators alike experienced even more of the "Blues" with more live music than ever before. Local Mississippi Blues artists provided the soundtrack to the entire race weekend beginning with the pre-race Expo and continuing through the finish line. In addition to music at the start/finish area, live musicians were stationed all along the race course. Check back soon for a map of live music locations along the 2015 race course.

Runners and spectators were treated to the sounds of artists including Scott Albert Johnson, Bill Abel and Cadillac John Noldin, Terry "Harmonica" Bean, and many more. We will provide more information regarding scheduled entertainment closer to race day.
