The Vamps at Duling Hall

Duling Hall - Wednesday - 7:30 pm
Imagine if Cannonball Adderley… set out from his home in Florida on a crosscountry trip and swung through Mississippi and Memphis on his way up to New York City where he encountered John Scofield at a Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting. The result would yield something resembling The Vamps. Tickets are available.

Robby Peoples at Martin's Downtown's 17th Annual Christmas Show

Martin's Downtown - Saturday - 10 pm
With a childhood steeped in the Delta blues tradition, Peoples' story oozes out in his lyrics about hardship, family, women, and booze. His storytelling is only ousted by his fiery harmonica playing which has allowed him to share the stage with Leon Russel, Black Joe Lewis, Delbert McClinton and more. Make no mistake, though, Robby Peoples is as rock and roll as Elvis Presley and as American as a Chevrolet. Tickets are available.

Kwanzaa Celebration

Mississippi Civil Rights Museum - Sunday 5:30 pm
Women for Progress of Mississippi presents an evening of holiday food and entertainment. For more information, reach out to
