Rain doesn't interrupt annual "Blues Bash"

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - An annual fundraiser for the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art took place as scheduled Friday night, despite the threat of rain. The 17th annual, "Blues Bash" brought out lovers of music and barbecue for an evening of authentic Mississippi delta blues.

The event is a fundraiser for educational programs at the museum.

Visitors gathered on the soggy front lawn to listen to "The Daddy Rich Blues Band," while enjoying good food from the Smokehouse Restaurant.
