The latest word from Helena as I understand it is this:

At this time, the festival is still on for this year at least.

The Sonny Boy Blues Society of Helena, Arkansas sponsors the Arkansas Blues 
and Heritage Festival, formerly known as the King Biscuit Blues Festival.  
The IRS imposed a levy on the accounts of the Sonny Boy Blues Society for 
not filing the required Form 990's for several years.  The accounts are not 
frozen at this time and the SBBS is back to business more or less as usual.  
I was informed that the SBBS and the IRS are working on a payment plan to be 
finalized sometime after the 2007 festival.
