Beale Street Caravan Fundraiser Tonight 

Local harmonica great Billy Gibson will host a fund-raiser for the syndicated radio show Beale Street Caravan tonight at the new Ground Zero Blues Club downtown. Tickets to the event are $75 a person and include food, an open bar, and a harmonica (with free lessons). There also will be a live and silent auction. The event is slated to run from 6 to 9 p.m.

Beale Street Caravan is produced in downtown Memphis and is broadcast internationally to more than 2.4 million listeners each week. The show, which is dedicated to presenting the best in blues and other roots music from Memphis and around the country, is produced by Sid Selvidge and hosted by Pat Mitchell. In recent weeks, former Commercial Appeal writer Bill Ellis has presented a series on the relationship between religion and the blues.

Upcoming shows are slated to feature artists such as north Mississippi bluesman Kenny Brown, multiple Blues Music Award recipient Watermelon Slim, second-generation blues belter Shemekia Copeland, and piano man Mose Allison.
