FROM CLARKSDALE

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.

Y'all stay safe out there!

When the world can travel again, we look forward to welcoming y'all to Clarksdale.

LIVE FROM CLARKSDALE

Many local musicians continue to play the blues.  They're just taking the watch party online.

As each watch party is scheduled, we'll keep this updated with where to find them.  You can also follow us and the hashtag #LiveFromClarksdale on Facebook and Instagram.

It's a new kind of virtual travel adventure we're embarking upon together.  Buckle up and join us!
