King Biscuit costs this year, but barely

Robert Belfour.

Oh, sorry, the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival costs this year. For the first time ever in its 33 year history. But just $5 a day, or $10 for a three-day pass. That's like Depression-era prices. Well, maybe free would've been the Depression-era price, but youknowwhatimsayin.

Particularly considering the line-up, which includes regulars like Michael Burks, Bobby Rush, Hubert Sumlin and Pinetop Perkins and Bob Margolin as well as big names like the Cate Brothers, T-Model Ford and Robert Belfour.

Actually, Belfour might not be a big name, but he should be. He's one of the last of the North Mississippi Hill Country bluesmen. So good.

The festival is Oct. 8-10.
