Thurs-Sun, 4/15-18 – JUKE JOINT FESTIVAL & Related Events… Mask up, and read on below

GOT MASK? THEN, JUKE JOINT FEST ’21 IS “ON”!

Your favorite festival returns to your second home — Clarksdale, Mississippi — the long weekend of April 15-18 in 2021. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP. If y’all are willing to properly mask up (indoors and out, even between bites and sips), socially-distance at all times, hand sanitize often, go through an occasional temperature check and agree to stay home if you’re sick… then plan now to attend this year’s smaller, socially-distanced, more outdoors, limited indoor capacity, pandemic-ly modified Juke Joint Festival. TOO MANY RULES FOR YOU? Then, please wait till 2022 (April 23rd weekend) to attend our nonprofit event. Our musicians, volunteers, businesses and community truly appreciate your thinking of us. Thanks… y’all rock! Lineup, wristbands and more at jukejointfestival.com.

For “VIRTUAL” shows, watch via www.livefromclarksdale.org (unless noted otherwise). All Clarksdale times are CDT.

Plus… SMALL, “LIVE” MUSIC EXPERIENCE BY APPOINTMENT! Bad Apple Blues Club owner/musician Sean “Bad” Apple is happy to open up his little juke joint for 1 to 6 healthy people with advance notice. Yup… you’ll need to maintain social distancing, wear a mask when not drinking, wash/sanitize your hans, etc. Call or drop by Cat Head to arrange (662-624-5992, roger@cathead.biz, 252 Delta Ave., Clarksdale).
