• For more information on Mississippi musicians, visit the Mississippi Writers and Musicians Project web page, our official archives. The students and faculty at Starkville High School have researched musicians native to Mississippi or who have spent a significant part of their lives in the state of Mississippi. Their research includes blues, country, classical, gospel, rock'n roll, rhythm and blues, jazz and popular. The site is now maintained and updated regularly by former SHS English teacher Nancy N. Jacobs.  Additions and corrections for this project may be sent to

  • We teach music in the school workshops and can furnish a musician to educate and perform for the workshop. Contact Jim for that service.
