Clarksdale visits

We have visted Clarksdale, Mississippi, many times over the years as individuals and four visits as Sons of the Delta. Here are the accounts of those visits together with a few choice images. Visit the Gallery for more photos.

The Juke Joint Festival & Planters Celebration - April 2005

Mark returned to Clarksdale in April 2005 to catch up with everyone there and also made some new friends.

"What a great time I had! I met up with all my old friends from the last visit - Bill, Jim, Guy, Jimbo, Will, BJ, Stan, Dixie, Roger, Jennifer, Jim, Phil, Ronnie, Rich, Ali, Joni, Shelley and, of course, Mr. Tater plus others too numerous to mention (sorry if your name's not here!) It was great to get back to the best music town in the world!
