Clarksdale, MS

The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, Mississippi, will host a book signing for Hidden History of Mississippi Blues with complimentary refreshments and live music on Wednesday, October 5th from 5pm-7pm. Author Roger Stolle will speak and sign copies of his new book, published by The History Press ($19.99). Stolle owns Clarksdale's Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art store, co-produced the film M for Mississippi and co-organizes the annual Juke Joint Festival.

"Hidden History of Mississippi Blues is largely based on the questions that blues fans and Cat Head customers have asked me over the past decade," according to Stolle. "It features chapters on cotton, juke joints and the 'Crossroads.' I've also included a section of interviews with the veteran Delta bluesmen who were there and lived to tell about it."

The book also contains photographs by Lou Bopp and a preface by Broke & Hungry Records founder Jeff Konkel. A recent book review can be found at www.mississippilegends.com.

The Delta Blues Museum is located at 1 Blues Alley in historic downtown Clarksdale and can be found on-line at www.deltabluesmuseum.org.
