The 2009 Media Tour

STLBlues was invited by the Mississippi Development Authority/Division of Tourism to attend a great weekend of music down in Mississippi, all wrapped around the legendary Juke Joint Festival.

An annual event that draws thousands to Clarksdale, this event celebrates the richness of the local music talent, yet brings in artists from all over. It's not unusual to see spontaneous musical magic happening around town, for example Watermelon Slim strolling into Red's - a legendary Clarksdale juke joint - and just tearing the house down.
