What’s going on in and around Clarksdale and/or Coahoma County…and beyond this coming week?

Check out Clarksdale’s regular music offerings and review some choice upcoming events. And don’t forget to check out the BOHEMIAN SCENE PHOTOS on this page, too.

The Delta Bohemians had a busy week while continuing to watch the Mississippi River rise to new heights. On May 6, The Delta Bohemians started with the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, then Delta Council in Cleveland where we heard a full water report by Colonel Jeff Eckstein from the Army Corp of Engineers (watch video). Then it was on to The Robert Johnson 100th Birthday Celebration in Greenwood. We ended at the Salon de Boheme with a glorious collection of friends for dinner. We will post more photos and videos from the BMA’s etc… in the coming week so look for it!

HIDDEN HISTORY OF THE MISSISSIPPI BLUES

by Roger Stolle

Book Signing at LEMURIA BOOKS in Jackson, MS, Friday, May 13

LIVE MUSIC by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes

EXCERPT from Lemuria Books website regarding event:

Although many bluesmen began leaving the Magnolia State in the early twentieth century to pursue fortune and fame in Chicago, many others stayed home. These musicians remained rooted to the traditions of their land, which came to define a distinctive playing style unique to Mississippi. They didn’t simply play the blues, they lived it.

Travel through the hallowed juke joints and cotton fields with author Roger Stolle as he recounts the history of Mississippi blues and the musicians who have kept it alive. Some of these bluesmen remain to carry on this proud legacy, while others have passed on, but Hidden History of Mississippi Blues ensures none will be forgotten.
