Blues Music

It seemed as if he'd go on forever — and B.B. King was working right up until the end. It's what he loved to do: playing music, and fishing. Even late in life, living with diabetes, he spent about half the year on the road. King died Thursday night at home in Las Vegas. He was 89 years old.

Tune in for two nights of soulful blues music live from the W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival at Audubon Mill Park in Henderson, the largest free music festival in the nation! We're live Wednesday at 8 PM and Friday at 7 PM.

Tine to bring out your brightest and boldest Mardi Gras outfit! The W.C. Handy Blues  Barbecue Festival returns to Henderson's Auburn Mill Park this week, featuring music by The Voice of the Wetlands Allstars, Janiva Magness, Chubby Carrier & The Bayou Swamp Band, and more! The festival runs today (Wednesday) through Saturday, June 15. It's one of the largest free music festivals in the nation, and proceeds go to fund next year's show.
