Uvee Hayes Uvee Hayes

A Macon, Mississippi native, Uvee Hayes was born and reared with the Blues. Her mom had a little country store where she would have Friday and Saturday night gatherings. People would come from all over to play, to sing, to listen, to dance. “You heard nothing but the blues,” says Uvee, “and those folks danced the dust up off the floor.” Join Uvee for a night of classic Blues straight from the source.
