TUSCUMBIA – Belle Mont Mansion will host “Music at the Mansion” on Saturday, July 31 from 3-5pm as part of the annual W.C. Handy Festival. The event will feature live music by the Jazz Allstars Trio. There is no charge to attend.
WC Handy became one of the most influential songwriters in the United States, taking the Blues from the Delta Blues regional music style with a limited audience to a new level of popularity.
The Jazz Allstars Trio, featuring festival favorite Scott Silbert on saxophone, joined by the quintessential jazz piano player Tyrone Jackson on keys, and percussionist Chris Burroughs will offer favorite standards of Jazz and Blues.
Light refreshments will be available for purchase on the courtyard and all proceeds will benefit the continued preservation and operation of the museum. Guests may enjoy a complimentary informal tour of the historic home, built circa 1828.
