The creators of the award-winning documentary videos âM For Mississippiâ and âWe Juke Up in Hereâ return later this year with âMoonshine & Mojo Handsâ 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 Deltaâs back roads in search of juke joints, house parties, barbecue, moonshine and â of course â the men and women who keep blues music alive in the land of its birth.
Â 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.
Â âThereâs truly no place else on Earth quite like Mississippi,â Konkel said. âWe canât wait to introduce viewers to all of the great music, food, culture and characters that the state has to offer.â
The showâs producers are currently raising funds through the Kickstarter website. Marketing sponsorship opportunities also are available for interested individuals and organizations.
âWeâve been really overwhelmed by the excitement and interest that the project has already generated,â Stolle said. âWith the support of sponsors and fans, weâre confident we can create a show that will help the world understand what makes Mississippi such a weird and wonderful place.â
âMoonshine & Mojo Handsâ is a joint production of Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art and Broke & Hungry Records in partnership with Tangent Mind, LLC and Lou Bopp.
