Sid Selvidge pays tribute to Walter "Furry" Lewis, a Memphis blues great who originally recorded in the '20s and was nearly forgotten before Selvidge's generation of musicians came to know him. The Memphis Country Blues Festivals which brought together old blues masters like Furry with younger musicians like Selvidge here at the Overton Park Shell in the '60s were probably the first strictly blues festivals anywhere. The historic amphitheater was renovated as the Levitt Shell in 2008 and now offers 50 + free shows every year.
