9 May 2015 - Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival
The Activities Council of Thomson is proud to announce the 2015 lineup for the 22nd Annual Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival, Saturday May 9th. The festival has been bringing great roots musicians and blues players to Thomson, in eastern Georgia, for over two decades.
The festival is always held in honor of Thomson’s Blind Willie McTell, an early 20th Century pioneer on the 12 string guitar. McTell played in a variety of musical styles, including blues in the Piedmont style, ragtime, and gospel music. McTell was born in McDuffie County and is buried in the Happy Valley area of the county. His influence extends over a wide variety of artists, including The Allman Brothers Band, who famously covered McTell’s “Statesboro Blues”, and Bob Dylan, who paid tribute to McTell in his 1983 song “Blind Willie McTell”.
