Since we were visiting during off season, we were able to find lodging fairly quickly in the form of a 2 bedroom stilt-raised house rented through BLUE DOLPHIN. The front deck offered a nice seaward view. Being a small community, we were close to cafes and bars, although some places were closed for the season. […]

On our Fall, 2014 excursion to GRANDE ISLE, LA, Jenae and I stopped for lunch at this little cafe which was on BAYOU LAFOURCHE.  Being Sunday, it was pretty crowded, but we opted to sit out on their porch.  We enjoyed our meal, and especially meeting the owner, Karen, to chat about her cafe, and […]

When people speak of “Southern Hospitality,” they must be channeling this family-run music and food venue, once again, right in the middle of everything else that matters in Clarksdale.  Art and Carol Crivaro, along with daughter, Amanda, present much of the local blues talent, along with special guests on […]

Until I just Googled this, I always referred to this Clarksdale jewel as HAMBONE ART GALLERY. Maybe it’s because I met and befriended Stan’s lovely and talented wife, DIXIE STREET first. Over the years, I visited, or attended one of their now-standard Tuesday night salons, and I could see both of them working hard to […]

This has been my home in Clarksdale since my first visit to The Delta in 2008. It is no accident that I keep returning here because it fulfills my sense of a rural escape from town…any town. Staying out on this now historical HOPSON PLANTATION gives me the option to just sit on my porch […]

Fifteen years ago when this club was established by world-famous actor MORGAN FREEMAN, his local business partner and friend, BILL LUCKETT, and Memphis entertainment executive, HOWARD STOVALL, I was dimly aware of this.  And occasional news articles kept insisting that Morgan Freeman eschewed the bright lights and big cities in favor of returning to his […]

Some people refer to this, “Backed by the river, fronted by the grave” local icon as Red’s Blues Club; I think of it as one of the last juke joints. But if you visit it some evening when both locals and visitors alike are enjoying real blues talent, you may agree with Roger Stolle’s description […]
