I hope everyone is enjoying the Clarksdale Film Festival…although I’m missing out myself due to the unfortunate scheduling of the Mississippi Press Association’s Mid-Winter Conference in Jackson falling on the same dates as our festival. I intend to bring that up with the powers-that-be so that hopefully this won’t happen next year! Click here for the complete schedule of events for the festival, and get out to see as much of it as you can.
Also this weekend, the Delta Blues Museum is celebrating 36 years of preserving and promoting the the heritage and culture of our unique corner of America…Mississippi’s oldest music museum will have events and performances featuring the world-famous and award-winning Delta Blues Museum Band, and we hear there will be some special guest making appearances as well! Click here for more information, and thank you to Shelly Ritter and her team for everything they do to keep the blues alive and educate visitors to Clarksdale about our history!
