LIVE

FROM CLARKSDALE

Streaming Live Blues 365 Nights A Year (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.

Now introducing...

Live From Clarksdale  

Many venues will continue to host live blues.  They're just taking the watch party online.

When venues can't host live music safely, some musicians will invite you into their living rooms.

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!
