Jazz Festival Coming to Ridgeland, Mississippi

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Keller Williams Realty

Jazz Festival Coming to Ridgeland, Mississippi The third annual Township Jazz Festival is coming to Ridgeland, Mississippi on April 10, 2010 and will take place rain or shine.  Not many communities can say they have a true musical legend right in their backyard.  There are a few inspiring youngsters from Ridgeland who may be legends one day, too.  The Jazz Festival will be held from 12:00pm until 7:00pm in Colony Park in Ridgeland, Mississippi, and will be hosted by Fusion Coffeehouse and Kerioth Corporation. 

Look for headliner Mose Allison, a native of Mississippi Delta village of Tippo.  This 82 year-old has had his songs covered by Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, The Who, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt and several other mainstays.  And now he's promoting his new recording "The Way of the World."

The Township Jazz Festival began in Ridgeland when musicians who began playing at the Fusion quickly started turning out large crowds and overwhelming the small venue.  They had no other choice but to look for a larger site.  And they got plenty of support from local sponsors.

This is a great opportunity to get out and mingle with your neighbors and other community members.  If you'll be in town looking at local Ridgeland, MS real estate or in the surrounding area, drop by the festival with your lawn chair and blanket.  It will give you a good sense of how welcome you'll feel when you move to town.

The festival was originally held at the old Montreux Casino, which burned down in December 1971 during Frank Zappa's performance.
