Pearl Fest honors Mayfield’s music

The late Percy Mayfield called Minden home and his original sound studio once stood just blocks from the site of this year's Pearl Fest.

The Minden native, who wrote "Hit the Road Jack" for Ray Charles will be remembered at this year's second annual Pearl Fest.

The two-day festival, sponsored by Blazer Construction, Penal Farm Road Entertainment LLC and funded in part by a grant from the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be held Friday and Saturday, September 23 and 24 at The Farm in Minden.
