Delta Blues Museum Online Store
Featuring Women in the Blues
The Delta Blues Museum continues to celebrate its 45th anniversary year during Women’s History Month in March. This year, the annual WHM observance features photographer Dorothea Lange, who took many iconic photos in and around Clarksdale during the 1930s. Award-winning Local journalist Panny Mayfield’s photographs of musicians and events, collected in "Live from the Mississippi Delta,” are a vivid record of the blues scene at the Crossroads.
The Museum’s galleries include an exhibit about Jackson-based Trumpet Records, founded by Lillian McMurry. And our displays showcase authentic artifacts such as Jesse Mae Hemphill’s boots and Denise LaSalle’s costumes. Plan your visit here.
Our Gift Shop has several souvenirs about these pioneering blues women. A boxed card set, "More Legends of the Blues,” collects 50 artists, among them legends such as Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Victoria Spivey, Big Mama Thornton, and Sippie Wallace. Each card shows an original portrait with a concise biography on the flip side. Our exclusive CD anthology, "Delta Blues,” features a rare track by Geeshie Wiley, called "the rural South’s greatest female blues singer and musician.” And we have CDs by Shemekia Copeland, Ruthie Foster and Koko Taylor as well as Big Mama Thornton and Bessie Smith.
