WATCH IT ALL!
CLARKSDALE! "It Is What It Is and The Sun Never Sets On Cool," - wise words from Redd Paden.
See this unique place through the eyes of music legend and multiple Grammy Award Winner Charlie Musselwhite and Chilly Billy Howell (formerly Poor William) of Delta Bohemian Tours and a Clarksdale born and raised native.
This is a real documentary about Clarksdale, Mississippi, heart of the Mississippi Delta and home of the birthplace of the blues. These shots were all taken spontaneously over the course of two days except for some of the music footage. Charlie Musselwhite loves Clarksdale and he let us follow him around some.
Footage of music from Red's Blues Club, Ground Zero Blues Club, Hambone Gallery, Juke Joint Chapel, Hopson Commissary and more. Musicians featured include Leo "Bud" Welch, Big George Brock, Robert "Bilbo" Walker, Lightnin' Malcolm, Josh "Razorblade" Stewart, Anthony "Big A" Sherrod, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, Charlie Musselwhite, Walt Busby, Bill Abel, Jon Popper, Cedric Burnside, Stan Street, Lee Williams, Heather Crosse, and more.
A big thank you to our dear friends Charlie and Henrietta Musselwhite and Charles Evans for letting us film them as they wandered around their beloved Clarksdale on November 2, 2015.
We especially appreciate our very good friend Red Paden for all he does to keep the blues alive in Clarksdale. He, Roger Stolle and Mayor Luckett are integral parts of our blues music scene in Clarksdale along with a host of many others....too many to mention. We are grateful to our local friends who tolerate us and allow us to film and photograph in their establishments and while they perform.
We consider ourselves very blessed to be natives of Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta. We hope you will come visit soon. If you do, please give Magical Madge and Chilly Billy a shout. Visit http://www.deltabohemian.com
