Jimbo Mathus

During the month of June 2022, Tin Shed artist in residence Jimbo Mathus and local artist Dale Pohl offered a month-long community (free) workshop for 25 children, ages 7-20 at the 100 Men Hall to educate and commemorate the Hall’s centennial anniversary. 

“A Blues Chronicle'' – with a custom-designed marionette stage - used art and music to foster a deeper appreciation for the culture, music and history of the 100 Men Hall community and its lasting impact on Bay Saint Louis and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
