Steven Van Zandt To Kick Off Memphis Blues Music Week

Steven Van Zandt will kick off Blues Music Week in Memphis with a special Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul show at Minglewood Hall on May 8. The concert is part of Van Zandt’s tour benefiting the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation’s TeachRock initiative, which is centered on a national middle and high school curriculum. Before the concert’s sound-check, the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation will also host free TeachRock Professional Development Workshops, and educators who attend will receive a complimentary ticket to that evening’s show. Van Zandt is not done however after kicking off the week. On May 10, he’ll also emcee the biggest awards show in Blues at the Cook Convention Center, where he will be joined on stage by presenters such as Steve Miller, Joe Louis Walker, Janiva Magness, Tito Jackson, Candi Staton, and Tony Joe White.
