Barefoot in Clarksdale is a workshop experience you will find nowhere else in the world.  There
is no way to re-create Clarksdale – the most interesting people and their incredible stories run
rampant.  And the land is as much a part of the experience as the people.  But the end result,
a short documentary, is only part of the experience.  The intense learning from the instructor’s
expertise (many times one-on-one), the close working relationships with strangers turned
classmates turned friends, and the voice of the Mississippi Delta and the characters that live
there all combine to create a very intense, surreal experience.
