A few weeks ago, on the 4th of July, I was asked to photograph the latest of the Vicksburg Blues Society’s Heritage Music Series. Above you can see one of those images… Mr. Sipp, the Mississippi Blues Child, performing at the Bottleneck Blues Bar inside the Ameristar Casino in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Mr. Sipp, aka Castro Coleman, is a blues musician born in McComb, Mississippi. His electric and fun show has been hailed a one of the best on the music scene and he is the winner of the 2014 International Blues Challenge. Find out more and listen to some of his music on his website: http://www.mrsippthemississippiblueschild.com
Thanks to Shirley Waring and the Vicksburg Blues Society for the opportunity to photograph this great performer.
