About
CAT HEAD is Mississippi's blues store in Clarksdale since 2002 — and your first stop for 'live' music info and more! "It's like shopping in a juke joint. It's the store I always wanted to walk into but could never find," according to owner-operator Roger Stolle. (Stolle moved to Clarksdale to "help organize and promote the blues from within.") The rustic hundred-year-old building is packed with blues, Mississippi, Southern and Clarksdale souvenirs and favorites — including CDs, vinyl LPs, DVDs, books, T-shirts, hats, barware, artwork and much more. Customers can also shop CAT HEAD's large Web Store at www.cathead.biz. Clarksdale, Mississippi, features 'live' blues music 365 days a year. Stolle tracks (and facilitates) it, so can tell where to go, who to hear and what to see. He's also produced blues films and CDs — plus written two books, "Hidden History of Mississippi Blues" and "Mississippi Juke Joint Confidential. Musicians sometimes play out front CAT HEAD store for tips.

Roger helped us at Cathead and he was/is a knowledgeable person about the area attractions, Blues, and frankly just a good person to spend a couple of minutes sharing conversation with. Highly recommend a stop here and say hello to Roger for us.

When we are in town we always stop in to grab a couple of CD's and T-shirts. Their music recommendations never disappoint.

It's a really cool place to browse and buy souvenirs or prints. The owner is super friendly and has a wealth of info about Clarksdale and what's going on that you might be interested in. We always stop by everytime we are passing through on our way to Louisiana.

We popped in here during our recent trip to Clarksdale. Super cool shop, loads of interesting things for sale. The owner is happy to chat and is definitely the person who knows what's going on in town. If you're in Clarksdale, you definitely need to stop by.

Very helpful

If you need information about Clarksdale, look no further. Roger is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about ALL things going on. Stop in, look around, and get the information that may be lacking elsewhere in “laid-back” Clarksdale. If you’re planning a visit, check out the website. If you find yourself in Clarksdale, make this your first stop. Roger and Frank are very friendly!

Rodger, who owns this shop, is the most knowledgeable person we met about the Clarksdale scene. He also has an interesting selection of things to buy.
Gotta go!
