North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic reloads

OXFORD TOWN – Finally. One of Mississippi’s favorite festivals kicks off tomorrow (June 29) at a brand new venue — Betty Davis BBQ – and the lineup is loaded as usual. T-Model Ford (pictured here) is only one of several legendary musicians and bands set to rock North Mississippi throughout the weekend. Pages 5, 8 and 9 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town (No. 985) gives you a complete heads-up about what to expect this weekend in Marshall County as the blues and temperatures in North Mississippi rise in a big way. (June 28, 2012, Page 5, 8-9)
