Story on blues' economic impact in Clarksdale in the Economist


The current issue of the British magazine The Economist ran a story on the last decade's blues boom in the Delta, and notably in Clarksdale. The article features Roger Stolle of Cat Head Delta Blues and Folk Art, while the uncredited image is of musician and artist Stan Street, a native of Rochester, New York who runs the Hambone Art Gallery in Clarksdale together with his wife and fellow musician Dixie. The Hambone Art Gallery features live music every Tuesday night, and puts on the Hambone Festival in late October.
