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.

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