Blues Culture in Mississippi

Dancers at Junior's III, Chulahoma, MS 1997
"Dancers hit the floor at Junior Kimbrough's juke joint in Chulahoma, MS as Junior's son, guitarist David Kimbrough, plays and sings one of his father's songs. Starting with his house parties in the 1950's and then with the opening of his first juke joint in 1991, Kimbrough established himself as the musical and social center for the African-American community in Marshall Co and the surrounding Hill country. Junior's son and drummer Kinney Kimbrough explains why locals have always responded to his father's music: "People just loved the rhythm of his music," says the younger Kimbrough. "It makes them move.""
