Overview

The first Shannon Street Blues Festival took place in July 1992 at the West Tennessee Farmers Market. It was funded by Jackson Main Street now known as Jackson Downtown Development Corporation. It grew out of research done at the Jackson-Madison County Library into the life of Jacksonian and blues harp pioneer, John Lee \"Sonny Boy\" Williamson. Some of the performers included Tom Price, Phillip Reynolds, Jack Pearson and William Howse and Memphis juke joint legend The Fieldstones.
