CLARKSDALE -

The Sunflower River Blues Festivalís tribute to Big Jack Johnson got an early start when Red Paden and Angenette Johnson hosted a birthday party for the Oilman Friday night, Aug. 1.

With news of the party spreading fast, Redís Blues Club was packed with family, friends, and international visitors from Switzerland.

ďJackís actual birthday was Wednesday, July 30, but we decided to wait til Friday because live music was booked,Ē says Johnsonís wife, Angenette.

Musical phenom Kingfish, the Space Cowboys, Anthony Sherrod, and Harvel Thomas threw down a rocking show. At the break, birthday cake was served.

The official Big Jack Johnson festival tribute is scheduled August 8-9.
