Performers at the May 26th Soul Survivors Festival in Ferriday may not be the sole survivors of the area's musical history, but they're close.
"There is so much music that has come from this region, and so many important musical figures who spent time in Ferriday, that it absolutely makes sense to celebrate it every year," according to organizer Tommy Polk. "This is our third edition of the Soul Survivors Festival, and it promises to be our biggest and best yet."
For families, the festival also promises plenty of fun children's games, chalk painting, jump rope, jumpers and train rides. There will also be food, refreshments and more available for purchase. Still, it's the music that's the big draw for out-of-state and international attendees.
"In Ferriday, we like to say that our little town is 'Where Music is Born'," said Polk. "By that, we mean that all of the music isn't in the past. It's still very much alive -- both here and nearby in Mississippi."
To that end, the Soul Survivor Festival continues to specialize in an authentic blues and roots music line-up showcasing the region's surviving musical traditions. This year, acts such as Sylvia Johns Richie & Crew, Nathan Shell, Lil' Poochie, Jimmy Anderson, Elmo Williams, Hezekiah Early, YZ Ealey Band and Angola Prison Band will perform in the new Jerry Lee Lewis Rockabilly Park and Plaza.
