I'm probably going up to Memphis in May for the Friday show only.  They've
apparently added a stage *outside* the festival grounds, in Handy Park.
Appearing there Friday will be Rufus Thomas (VH1 Stage, Handy Park 5:25)

Also Friday, at the BellSouth Mobility Stage:

Eddie Floyd 9:00 - 9:50
Bar-Kays 10:15 - 11:10
Booker T & the MG's 11:40 - 12:40

In the Blues Tent:

Honeyboy Edwards  9:05 - 9:55 (also Bernard Allison, Jimmy Thackry, Tommy
Castro, and the Junkyardmen)

There's a Big Star reunion at 8:25 at the Budweiser stage.

Also:  Los Lobos 9:20 - 10:35

I won't be going Saturday or Sunday. Some of the music on Saturday includes
Koko Taylor, Dr. John, Wilson Pickett, R.L. Burnside, Corey Harris, Billy Lee
Riley; Sunday includes Clarence Carter, Bobby Bland, Alvin Hart, Eddie
Clearwater, James Cotton, and the Gospel stage.  There's a lot else of no blues
interest-- if you want to see the schedule, it's at:
