Roger, the proprietor, is a generous, dedicated, and competent caretaker of the Mississippi Blues legacy. His store is a gem of a place, filled with art selections sufficient to beautify any home and music selections capable of sanctifying any CD player.

do visit Cathead - Roger promotes all local blues music and is extrememly knowledgable about what is happening in the area and always willing to help visitors get the most out of their visit. he also organises the Juke Joint Festival in April and has two videos about the blues which i would thoroughly recommend - "M for Missisippi " and "we Juke up in here".

The shop has a big selection of material, from records and dvds to shirts, photos, local art, prints, used gig posters and the likes.

We stopped by twice. On the first time, we actually didn't shop anything. Nevertheless, the owner was very nice and helped us by giving useful information about the music happening that night at the local juke joints.

If you are looking for the schedule of shows and addresses, I also recommend his "Live music" web calendar, which we found very complete as to what goes on in the local scene:

The font of all knowledge, what do you want to know about what is going on in Clarksdale? Ask here! Do you want alternative blues music, get it here. This is a store for the true blues fan. I was recommended this location by non other than The Reverend Peyton, it is a must visit, it has to be as much a part of Clarksdale as the Ground Zero Club and Reds lounge.

A great starting point for your Blues journey in the Mississippi Delta. A great selection of local art and music. The owner is an invaluable resource for all the current goings on in the area. The community is doing a great job of gentrification in the downtown area. I found the fold art excellent but out of my price range. I has the feel of an old country general store only with blues merchandise rather than odds and ends. A must by stop as you explore the 'city center'.
