Pine Bluff, Arkansas’s cultural history dribbles and oozes with the earthy sounds of Arkansas Delta music. It is one of richest places of musical creation and innovation anywhere serving as the birth home, residence, or place of distinction for jazz/blues/soul/gospel greats like Sippie Wallace, Big Bill Broonzy, J. Mayo Williams, George Thomas, Elmore James, Sam Cooke, Vernon Garrett, Charles Brown, Cedell Davis, Miles Davis, Clark Terry, Smokie Norful and others.
To celebrate this wonderful legacy, Explore Pine Bluff launched their first ever Pine Bluff Virtual Blues and Soul Summer Sets. Each 2nd and 4th Thursday and Friday in June, July and August, listeners were invited to kick back and enjoy an hour of the best in Blues and Southern Soul deejaying one night and an hour of live Blues and soul music from incredible Pine Bluff-affiliated artists the next night. While many of these Delta artists are scattered across the U.S., they’ve got the Pine Bluff area in their hearts and shared stories about growing up and their time in the Delta while performing.
