VIDEO IN POST
John Henshall, Clarksdale semi-fixture and a known Delta Bohemian, requested that the ignoble but passionate Magical Madge and Poor William assist him with doing a quirky (we do quirky) video promoting Clarksdale, Mississippi to his Aussie counterparts in the Melbourne, Australia area.
Henshall, a lover of Clarksdale and an economist/planner, has worked since 1969 consulting with industry and governments in Australia and abroad. He studied, assessed and developed at his own expense an Action Plan for Revitalization for Downtown Clarksdale, having spent a considerable amount of time over several visits to our fair city.
John is an Economist / Planner who has worked since 1969 with organizations in industry, government and consulting, both in Australia and abroad. His experience covers projects in urban and regional economic development and land use planning; industry sector analysis; and retail, industrial and commercial location and development.
After meeting with the affable Lois Erwin, Director of the Delta Bridge Project and a close friend of Henshall, and the hard-to-ruffle Coordinator of Clarksdale Revitalization, Inc. Mac Crank, the Delta Bohemians set about videoing and collating footage for the promo and welcome to Clarksdale video.
Having only a short time to produce the video during one of the busiest tourist seasons for Clarksdale, we were sad not to be able to interview and video ALL the awesome characters and businesses in the area that represent the best of what Clarksdale has to offer Australians and other visitors in the way of products, services, and Southern hospitality.
Our blossoming Bohemian community offers tourists so much more than just awesome, authentic blues music, including talented artists, delightful restaurants, and museums and galleries. Hopefully, if contracted to develop further videos on Clarksdale’s unique community, the Delta Bohemians will be able to include more of the awesome Mississippi Delta area attractions. Enjoy a little slice of Mississippi Delta spice:
