The Texas Legislature designated Navasota “The Blues Capital of Texas” in 2005 to honor the city’s rich blues history, particularly the great blues songster Mance Lipscomb. Navasota remembers Lipscomb, a lifelong resident who passed away in 1976, each year with the Navasota Blues Festival (August 12-13, 2016). The festival features 10 performers, including such Texas acts as Trudy Lynn, the Peterson Brothers, and Rob Roy Parnell. The festival also includes free workshops focusing on the blues guitar and cigar box guitar.
