Hopson Plantation Commissary
The Hopson Plantation Commissary stands today in much the same condition as in its glory days over fifty years ago. The building is full of antique and historical items which create a nostalgic atmosphere reminiscent of the deep south Delta

Cotton had always required a large amount of hand labor, at one time over a million families to raise 22 million acres of cotton.

In 1935 the Hopson Plantation began a monumental changeover to become one of the first completely mechanized cotton operations in the world. In the fall of 1944, International Harvester introduced the first cotton picker on the Hopson farm making it the first in the world to grow and harvest a commercial acreage of cotton produced completely by mechanical methods.

From planting, to cultivating, to irrigating, to harvesting, to ginning, the Hopson enterprise became the showplace of Delta farming.

Our project

    A group of blues loving women will be pulling together a live recording/performance that is scheduled in the days PRIOR to the International Blues Challenge this coming January (28-29 Jan 2013). Most of the women will  heading to Memphis to the International Blues Challenge, so this will cut the cost of the project for travel expenses.

     We are doing this project to continue to support and promote BLUES WOMEN ARTISTS and MUSICIANS. To bring a bigger audience to their music and musicianship. We will be sending this out to Radio, Press, booking venues and more.

    We are reaching out to you for support funding to pull together the project .

    The recording engineer and mastering has already been confirmed, in Clarksdale during TWO days. The venue that has been confirmed - Hopson Plantation Commissary. We are also still sourcing out a house that we can all stay in while recording, to make it accessible to all the Blues Women.

    In the end the album will be a CD compilation of ORIGINAL music by women blues artists and players, distributed to radio for promotion and used to promote and raise money for further women in blues projects. This recording will be a live performance where there will be an audience.
