The Delta Blues Museum broke ground on the exciting new wing, dedicated as the Muddy Waters Addition. The 7,000 sq ft, two-story wing will house new permanent exhibits, and will open in 2012!
Here's a special treat! Buddy Guy, Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, and Johnny Lang, all jamming on one magnificent stage!
The Blues Foundation is moving to South Main next year, fulfilling a 30-year-old dream for a permanent home to showcase the music and the artists who make it.
