Tuesday’s “Tales from the South” features live readings from Bill Luckett, co-owner of the Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Miss. and Democratic candidate for governor of Mississippi; Mississippi singer/songwriter Steve Azar and singer/songwriter and Times favorite Jim Mize. It’s the “Delta Music Show” edition of “Tales,” which is recorded live in front of an audience at Starving Artist every Tuesday. Jaman Matthews profiled the series recently in the Times.
Unless you’ve already got a ticket, you’re SOL to hear that promising line-up tell stories. The show’s sold-out. If you do have tickets, you’re gonna get to rub elbows with Morgan Freeman, who co-owns Ground Zero with Luckett, and Joey Lauren Adams and Harry Thomason, who’re in town for the Little Rock Film Festival screening of Thomason’s “The Last Ride” on Wednesday.
As always, Bonnie Montgomery’s Montgomery Trucking provides opening music.
