Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art
This store should be your first stop when visiting Clarksdale. Owner Roger Stole is the concierge of all things blues, a
walking encyclopedia and calendar of events. The Cat Head store is jam packed with CDs, DVDs, Books, T shirts,
Caps, one-of-a-kind folk art that eradicates the border between music and art.
Open since 2005, Hambone Gallery is an inviting space located in historic downtown Clarksdale owned and operated
by artist and musician Stan Street. This venue is both unique and welcoming to art lovers, artists, musicians, and
storytellers from around the globe.
Cajun chefs, bluesmen and red-haired women people the art of Stan Street. On his canvas, New Orleans’s Delta and
Florida’s Big Cypress Swamp blend into a stew of red hot licks and blazing notes. Street’s earliest art celebrated the
blues pioneers in wide slashes of brilliant color on slabs of discarded wood, rescued from anonymity with portraits of the
likes of Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Robert Johnson. Bold strokes and colors play out the sounds he hears and plays
as a musical artist.
Lambfish Art Company
Painter, potter, teacher, cat lover, and cole slaw enthusiast; in his own words, Joey Young "makes things!" A native of
Charleston, MS, when not teaching art at a local school he maintains an art studio and gallery in downtown Clarksdale.
Joey is known locally for his Delta Crucifix series with telephone poles, landscapes with vibrant colors, and—of course
Young can often be seen working his pottery wheel in his shop, listening to some blues or other music at one of several
music venues in the area, or just chillin’ downtown.
