The 2nd annual WXPN Music Film Festival is happening April 11th-14th. On Saturday, April 13th there will be a free screening of We Juke Up In Here, the documentary by filmmakers Jeff Konkel and Roger Stolle about the juke joints of Mississippi. In addition to the film screening there will be a performance from blues musician Rory Block and an interview with Block and WXPN’s Jonny Meister, host of The Blues Show on WXPN on Saturday nights at 7PM. Block has long been inspired by the Mississippi blues and artists like Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, and Son House. Her work is infused with the spirit of the Mississippi blues and this will be a program that you will not want to miss. The event is free, however RSVP’s are required here. Below, watch Block perform “Crossroad Blues.” She also will be performing at the Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania on April
