Willie Dixon gets his day in Vicksburg

It’s been a long time coming, but Willie Dixon gets his day in his hometown of Vicksburg, Mississippi on Thursday of this week with a jam session in his honor, a marker and a mural…all celebrating his life and music. The festivities begin at 3:00pm when the Mississippi Blues Commission will unveil the Willie Dixon Mississippi Blues Trail Marker. The trail is a collection of more than 100 historical markers and interpretive sites throughout the state to recognize Mississippi's blues heritage. The celebration will finish up with a Willie Dixon tribute jam session.
