Hidden in the heart of the Mississippi Delta and surrounded by endless fiends of cotton, Clarksdale, Mississippi might not stand out at first. However, anyone who is blue-savvy will probably know that this sleepy town is in fact the birthplace of the blues and was home to legends such as Muddy Waters and Sam Cooke. It’s a place of Juke Joints and huge talent (and not only in music), welcoming people and an atmosphere that perhaps can’t be found anywhere else.
Delta Blues is a collaborative project that visually documents the Juke Joint Festival that takes place in Clarksdale, Mississippi every year, as well as some of the stars of the event, including musicians Big A and Lala Craig, Baking Virtuoso Sweet-Tooth Teddy and Robin Colonas, owner of the historical ‘New Roxy’.
