What the hell: Clarksdale Pt. 2 in photos Gallery posted on April 11, 2015April 14, 2015 by Lydia Warren Google Maps directs me to the crossroads. You know, sell your soul, etc. Those 3 guitars behind the Abe’s sign = crossroads. New Roxy on Issaquena Ave Paramount on Yazoo Ave Just purty. Wade Walton’s Barbershop/BBQ/blues club. Preston Rumbaugh & Henry Swain Club at Cathead. This bass player was especially fun to listen to. I couldn’t find much about this now-vacant store, but the Kerstine family records would be fun to comb through (http://www.lib.usm.edu/legacy/archives/kerstine.htm). Delta Ave Griot Arts on Sunflower Ave Robert “Bilbo” Walker, blues legend. Along Yazoo Ave. I briefly talked to the gentleman taking the photo here and his bandmate behind him. They said to come to a club which I couldn’t find; if you know who these guys are, lemme know! Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, the best acoustic blues player ever, and a real funny guy to boot (and Bilbo in the background). Leo “Bud” Welch and Big Jon Short at the Delta Blues Museum Cathead stage, not sure who’s in this band. Christone “Kingfish” Ingram absolutely shredding at the Delta Furniture Stage on Issaqueena Ave. Meat box. Sunset. 34.200109 -90.570932 Clarksdale, MS, USA Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

Great Shots! Ferget the guitar/Phd thing and become a photographer, you can make almost as much $ and cameras are easier to get on a plane!
These are wonderful photos.
I especially like the suitcase guitar.

Juke Joint Festival!!! Linda and I went there twice. The latest time was 2012. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We had the honor of meeting and hearing some of the late greats, Honeyboy Williams, Model t Ford, and Robert Belfour. Red’s was the closest we have come to a genuine Juke Joint. It was packed, sweaty and bluesy. We consider “Big” Jon Short a friend. He has performed more than once at house concerts we hosted when we lived in Worcester, MA I just heard some of your tunes and watched a few of your videos online. I like what I hear. We live in San diego now, and we host La Playa House Concerts. Come meet us, sing and play sometime.
