Shows at Po' Monkey's Lounge during Bridging the Blues

On Thursday October 2nd Clarksdale bluesman Terry "Big T" Williams will play at the juke joint Po' Monkey's Lounge, and on Thursday October 9th Greenville blues-rock band GoodPaper of Reverend Robert Mortimer will play there. Both events are sponsored by the Cleveland-Bolivar County Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring a number of other events during Bridging the Blues.

The juke is run by Willie "Po' Monkey" Seaberry, who lives in the back and farms the nearby fields. Now in his '70s, Seaberry has operated the downhome venue since 1963.

Here's a video portrait of Seaberry and the club that was made a couple years ago for the Oxford American magazine.



A map and a history of the juke joint are featured on the webpage for the Mississippi Blues Trail marker that stands outside.

  4. A hand written letter can be a highly prized possession, especially in this era of emails and online chatting. But a hand written letter on high quality writing paper can make it even more prized, enhancing the reading experience.
