W C Handy Music Festival 2020
This event has expired and is here for your information.
The Music Preservation Society, Inc., and the W.C. Handy Festival Steering Committee, is pleased to present the socially connected while physically distanced 39th W.C. Handy Music Festival. Much planning has gone into ways to offer activities that are as safe as possible for everyone to enjoy during these unprecedented times. Although many of the familiar Handy events will not take place this year, there are some safe activities offered throughout this year’s Festival dates of July 17-26, 2020. Enjoy music and more from a distance as we continue to pay tribute to the legacy and contributions of Shoals area music, while honoring the memory of the one and only "Father of the Blues", William Christopher (“W.C.”) Handy.
