JACKSON, MISS. – February 16, 2016 – Mississippi is home to blues and is the heart of the Americana Music Triangle. Gospel, country, jazz, bluegrass and rock ‘n’ roll have deep-running roots here. The sound is still alive and well.
In spring 2016, Mississippi is celebrating Americana music in a totally new way. With itineraries spanning the state, the Americana in Mississippi Music Tour boasts headliner Rambling Steve Gardner and The Jericho Roadshow performing in 16 communities. Each location will supplement the show with a performance by a local band or musician, allowing for a true taste of each city’s musical flavor. The Americana in Mississippi Music Tour kicks off March 1 with a performance at Jackson’s Duling Hall, and ends April 28 in Tupelo.
“There is no better way to experience real Americana music than the Americana in Mississippi Music Tour,” said Governor Phil Bryant. “It all started here, in the birthplace, and we want people to know that you can still experience the real deal – whether it’s at a festival, an authentic juke joint or a music tour like this one. Music is part of Mississippi’s DNA, and we want to share that with the world.”
The tour’s official web page, www.visitmississippi.org/americana, showcases a short promotional film, tour schedule and locations, video interviews with Mississippi artists, itineraries for each community on the tour, and more.
“This is a great opportunity for visitors who are interested in music to come and experience it for themselves,” said Interim Director of Visit Mississippi Daron Wilson. “It shows the great relationship between our state tourism department and our individual Convention and Visitor Bureaus, and it’s the perfect chance to see some of the state’s high points. We are so appreciative of our tourism partners, the Mississippi Tourism Association and the proprietors of the venues featuring the tour. We’ve come together to showcase the best of the best when it comes to Americana music.”
We will be closed Dec. 14, 2015 and reopen at 10:30 am on Tuesday Dec. 15 for our annual employee Christmas Party. In addition we will be closed Dec. 24 and 25 so that our crew can spend time with their families.

“The Shed BBQ and Team Fitzgerald Families Join Forces to Preach the Delicious Goodness of Wild & Domestic Game BBQ!”
Two Nationally recognized the beloved families have joined forces to further bring the goodness and fun of grilling, smoking and other various ways of cooking wild game and domestic game BBQ to individuals and families around the world!
ABOUT TEAM FITZGERALD
Dan and Guy Fitzgerald of Team Fitzgerald – long time award winning veteran video and television producers – are pioneers of the modern day bowhunting/outdoor cooking/country lifestyle video/tv movement, seminar stage presentation speakers, and founders of the Fitzgerald Hoss Buck brand product line available in thousands of stores across the U.S. and Canada.

Collectively, Dan & Guy have produced over 100 full-length titles and their Team Fitzgerald Television Series has been the longtime Fan Favorite 100% Bowhunting/Outdoor Cooking series on various national broadcast networks for decades and globally online.
Not only are they internationally known for their expertise in hunting, speaking and video production but Dan and Guy are equally known for their expertise in most all ways of preparing and cooking wild game, sharing a combined 95 years cooking experience. Their “from the woods to the table” approach enables them to share unique and exciting in depth, step by step techniques of utilizing every part of the animal including the lesser known cuts of meat. Dan and Guy bring as much entertainment to cooking as they do education! “I think cooking should be as fun as hunting” , says Guy. “Surprisingly, many hunters don’t really do much cooking of the game they kill themselves, and it has been our mission for decades to inspire folks to turn that around, by writing and producing fun, unique creative, easy to understand, and delicious cooking segments/recipes that the common hunter can do themselves and to benefit the whole family!”
ABOUT THE ORRISON’S
The Orrison family, an internatinally known BBQ family are television regulars. Brother and sister team, Brad Orrison and Brooke Lewis are co-owners of The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint in Ocean Springs, MS.

Here is where the stars aligned for the Fitzgeralds and Orrisons to team up to share the best of their combined “game” with the art of cooking game. Team Fitzgerald has never endorsed a National brand of BBQ sauce to this level. They had their favorites of course but never put their public stamp of approval on any of them, until they tried The Shed’s Southern Sweet. From there they tried The Shed’s other products and fell in love. They then began extensive testing of the products, paring them with different types of wild game, using many techniques of cooking and studying the flavor profiles thy brought to the game. “We are all about the taste – the final result. We bring friends and family out for backyard cookouts and even do some blind taste testing and The Shed BBQ sauces consistently take the top spot among the adults and kids too! This is huge, as there are a lot of competitive BBQ sauces out there! It says a great deal about how truly amazing The Shed Sauces are. The Orrisons know what they are doing.”, says Guy.
“We Orrison’s have found a family that we are proud to be teaming up with to promote our common passions. We have a lot in common with the Fitzgerald’s and look forward to working together to promote our passions of BBQ and sharing cooking techniques for wild and domestic game. We admire the humane manner of hunting and respect the Fitzgeralds bestow to the animals they bring from field to fork”, proclaims Linda Orrison, aka “Mama Shed”, Matriarch of the Orrison clan. Linda is also the sitting President of the National Barbecue Association.
