Posted By on Thu, May 7, 2009 at 10:43 AM

The Blues Music Awards start at 5:30 p.m. this evening at Cook Convention Center with Watermelon Slim, Janiva Magness, and Magic Slim among the leading nominees.


On the local front, the Best New Artist Debut category will be compelling, with three of five nominees — Eden Brent, Cedric Burnside & Lightnin' Malcolm, and Delta HIghway having strong Mid-South ties.

Andria Lisle talks to some of the key participants in this week's Flyer. Go here for a full slate of nominees and check back on Sing All Kinds tomorrow for a list of the winners.
