HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Musicians, artists, songwriters and even a Grammy winner will all be a part of a celebration called Tripod 2016 Festival.

Now in its second year, the event will be held at University Baptist Church on Arlington Loop in Hattiesburg.

This year's festival begins with a Friday night musical celebration featuring regional favorites Cary Hudson, Thomas Jackson and Scott Chism & The Better Half.

They will also be joined by Mississippi poet Sharon Gerald and special guest, Grammy award-winning song writer Tricia Walker.

Saturday’s featured guests will be the Mulligan Brothers.

"This is for everybody, donation only, we have suggestions but our biggest suggestion is just be there,” said David Walker, event organizer. “I will say that one of the things that keeps coming back to us from all the artists that we've ever had, they love this gig because when they are on (stage) they're not background for anything else, they are the focus. This is where we get an interaction that is really rare."

Walker said, “The big show, the finale is Saturday evening, at 7 p.m. the doors open, The Mulligan Brothers, who are a huge group for us to have and are just getting back from their European tour right now and they are very excited about doing their debut for the Back Door."

All events and workshops will be held at University Baptist Church on Arlington Loop in Hattiesburg.
