Everything you need to know about the blues, whether you want to read about it or listen to it, this is the place to go - always buy something on every trip to take home to remind me of how special Clarksdale is to the blues. Some amazing performances at the front door stage during the Juke Joint Festival.

We talked a few minutes and he gave us some ideas about where to go for live music. The store had all sorts of Blues related books, cds and collectable items. I... More
