W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival Charity Profile
The W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival has become one of the largest free music festivals in the nation, drawing attendants from just about every state and many countries. The festival is a celebration of the life and legacy of Henderson resident and Father of the Blues, William Christopher Handy. According to legend, the Alabama born composer and his band were traveling home from the postponed Chicago World's Fair in 1892 when they ran out of money in St. Louis. Work was scarce there, so Handy left the rest of the band and headed to Evansville, Indiana.
