STREAMING LIVE BLUES 7 NIGHTS A WEEK
(OR HOWEVER LONG THIS LASTS)
Clarksdale welcomes people who travel from all over the world to the Mississippi Delta, the birthplace of the blues. Our downtown has a rich tapestry of venues where you can hear the blues live -- all 365 nights a year.
As people stop traveling and we work to keep our community safe from the coronavirus, we're creating new ways of staying connected and keeping the blues alive.
VIRTUAL JUKE JOINT FESTIVAL CELEBRATION
The physical edition of Clarksdale, Mississippi's biggest blues event may be on hiatus till next year, but fans around the world can enjoy a daylong online tribute in its place.
The first-ever Virtual Juke Joint Festival Celebration streamed Saturday, April 18th noon-9pm (CDT), followed by the world-premiere of the new Ted Reed Productions film Juke Joint Festival Revisited at 9pm.
The livestream can still be found in the Videos on Live From Clarksdale's Facebook page:
