Deep Winter Blues

Upcountry South Carolina is a historical Mecca for the blues. Throughout the 1920’s and 1930’s the streets of Laurens County, Greenville, Spartanburg, &

Anderson reverberated with the music of bluesman/street-preachers as they were strolling with their tin cups extended. Many of these musicians became famous on the streets of New York City in the folk revival of the 50’s & 60’s.

It is this tradition that we celebrate each February at the Hagood Mill Historic Site.
