The creators of the award-winning documentary videos ‚ÄėM For Mississippi‚Äô and ‚ÄėWe Juke Up in Here‚Äô return later this year with ‚ÄėMoonshine & Mojo Hands‚Äô a new weekly web-TV series dedicated to the world of Mississippi blues. The show follows hosts Jeff Konkel and Roger Stolle as they travel the Delta‚Äôs back roads in search of juke joints, house parties, barbecue, moonshine and ‚Äď of course ‚Äď the men and women who keep blues music alive in the land of its birth.
¬†The first season of the show will consist of 10 episodes streaming for free online this fall. Each 12-minute episode will take viewers on a wild ride through the Mississippi Delta and Hill Country to meet the region’s most fascinating characters in truly unforgettable settings.
¬†‚ÄúThere‚Äôs truly no place else on Earth quite like Mississippi,‚ÄĚ Konkel said. ‚ÄúWe can‚Äôt wait to introduce viewers to all of the great music, food, culture and characters that the state has to offer.‚ÄĚ
The show‚Äôs producers are currently raising funds through the Kickstarter website. Marketing sponsorship opportunities also are available for interested individuals and organizations.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôve been really overwhelmed by the excitement and interest that the project has already generated,‚ÄĚ Stolle said. ‚ÄúWith the support of sponsors and fans, we‚Äôre confident we can create a show that will help the world understand what makes Mississippi such a weird and wonderful place.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄėMoonshine & Mojo Hands‚Äô is a joint production of Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art and Broke & Hungry Records in partnership with Tangent Mind, LLC and Lou Bopp.
