THE SHOALS – Today marks the kickoff of the 2012 W.C. Handy Music Festival, presented by The Music Preservation Society. Make your plans to attend as many venues as you can, starting with tonight’s lineup. Here are a few selected happenings. At 6 o’clock on Court Street in Florence is the Courtin’ The Blues Parade. After that you can swing over to Wilson Park for Sax In The City, featuring a Shoals Favorite, The Midnighters. If you want some cool jazz, stop by Listerhill Credit Union for some Helen And The Blues, featuring The Charlie Rose Trio, and sponsored by The Shoals’ best, community-oriented, Helen Keller Hospital. Looking for some Bluegrass? Head over to Rogersville’s Recreational Park. The music begins at 6 o’clock.
