Our good friends Charlie and Henrietta Musselwhite love coming to Clarksdale. We are thankful to spend quality time with them during their visits.

Serendipitously, Billy and I were getting some footage for a commissioned promotional Clarksdale blues music video for some clients in Australia and the Musselwhites were happy to let us capture them as they wandered around town.

“Poor William” Billy Howell, (aka Chilly Billy) the narrator, is a personal guide for Delta Bohemian Tours and Innkeeper for Clark House. He has observed over time why folks come to the Mississippi Delta, again and again, particularly to Clarksdale. Hopefully, this video will provide insight as to why this special region is like a magnet.

Enjoy this documentary footage illustrating some of the benefits of coming to Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta. It includes footage from Red’s Blues Club, Ground Zero Blues Club, Hambone Gallery, Juke Joint Chapel, Hopson Commissary and much more. We hope it will spur you to come visit this unique place.
