B.B. King returns to Indianola for his annual Homecoming Festival Saturday, which will be staged for the first time at the museum bearing his name. And, as usual, he’ll be entertaining blues fans late in the evening at the historic Club Ebony.
King, who turns 86 in September, heads to Europe later in June for a monthlong tour. On Tuesday he returned to his home state to perform at the fifth annual Mississippi Grammy Celebration at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.
The Homecoming concert at the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center begins at 2 p.m., with King scheduled to perform at 8:30 p.m.
