The inspiration for the Clemson Blues Festival comes from Littlejohn’s Grill, an African American nightclub that once brought LIVE music to Clemson. Located along a music corridor known as the chitlin’ circuit, the Grill hosted scores of major Blues, R&B and Jazz musicians.

A book, “THE LITTLEJOHN’S GRILL STORY: Blues, Jazz and Rock ‘n’ Roll in Clemson, SC” tells the story of Clemson’s blues heritage, chronicling the more than 100 major performers to visit Clemson between 1945 and 1968. The book has many interesting stories about Clemson with a series of photographs of performers. Learn more about the book.

Last year’s Clemson Blues Festival was a great event attended by 1000′s of blues fans. They got all they wanted as Chick, Mac, Frankie, Paula, Sarah Mac, Robbie Ducey and Clemson’s own Hoodoo Hounds scorched us with some great sounds. On Sunday afternoon gospel choirs and bands showed us the roots of the Blues with their inspirational performances.
