Historic Helena Offers Live on the Levee Concert and Helena Second Saturday This Weekend

This Saturday, April 14, marks the first Live on the Levee concert series, a partnership between King Biscuit Blues Festival, Sonny Boy Blues Society and the Delta Bridge Project. The concert features music by 2 Mule Plow and Lisa Haley & the Zydekats.
The concert will be held at the Cherry Street Pavilion in historic downtown Helena. Gates open at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at www.KingBiscuitFestival.com or at the gate. Food, beverages and merchandise will be available for purchase at the event. In honor of the Zydeco music, one vendor will be offering a Cajun crawfish boil dinners for purchase.

The group 2 Mule Ploy is considered one of the finest collection of Memphis’ bluegrass talent ever assembled. Their three-part harmonies and instrumentals are a highlight of every show. While the group’s shows consist of mostly traditional bluegrass music, they have “bluegrassed” songs by the Beatles, the Allman Brothers, Lynard Skynard, Elvis, Eric Clapton and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Lisa Haley is a Grammy-nominated fiddler, dancer, vocalist and songwriter known for her moving Louisiana bayou rhythms. Haley and her band, the Zydekats, have performed together for 15 years, including appearances at the Grammy Museum Concert Series and the Hollywood Bowl Summersounds Concert Series, as well as concerts in over 20 countries.
April 14 is also Helena Second Saturday! The event brings local artisans, musicians, merchants, farmers and visitors together the second weekend of each month in downtown Helena. The event, held along historic Cherry Street, is a great opportunity for shopping, eating and exploring. Many of the businesses along historic Cherry Street participate and offer extended hours on Second Saturdays. You’ll find artists, musicians and craftspeople located along the street, playing live music or create a masterpiece in front of your eyes.
