Clarksdale Juke Joint Festival was held in Clarksdale, Mississippi, on April 21 - 24, 2022.  This was the first blues festival we have been able to attend since the COVID-19 pandemic occurred.

Time is Relative

What would be a long wait for service in other parts of the country, especially on either the East or West coast, is the standard time in the south and, more specifically, Mississippi.  Relax.  Take your time.  If you are in a hurry, then show up early or chain fast food.
