Juke Joint Festival In Clarksdale MS Starts This Weekend!

Juke Joint Festival In Clarksdale MS Starts This Weekend!

The 16th annual Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale Mississippi gets underway this weekend featuring Knick Knack Records artists Brett Benton (Seattle) and Ryan Lee Crosby (Boston) - schedules below.

 

Brett's raw style is best heard one of two ways: paying homage to its roots with solo, acoustic slide guitar and “stompin’ and hollerin’ ” as Bad Blood himself would put it; and electric alongside a heavy, relentless and dynamic style of drums that really emphasizes what country blues is all about… the hypnotic groove that gets folks up and dancing!

  • Friday April 12 at 7:15pm Brett Benton performing at the New Roxy
  • Saturday April 13 at 2pm Brett Benton performing at the Mr Tater Memorial Stage

 

With an intercontinental band, Ryan Lee Crosby blends American folk-blues and North Indian raga into meditative songs of impermanence, compassion and joy. Through his music, Crosby hopes to inspire peace, openness and respect - for tradition, for culture, for each other and for one’s self.

Ryan Lee Crosby’s “River Music will satisfy the slightly adventurous listener as few other records I heard last year.” - Matt Hanson, The ARTS FUSE

Ryan Lee Crosby’s sound “is an update on the ghostly, close-to-the-bone approach of Delta bluesman Skip James. But don’t be fooled — the legendary Burnside and Kimbrough clans are among his gurus, and he's learned well.” Ted Drozdowski - NASHVILLE SCENE

  • Friday April 12 at 11am Ryan Lee Crosby performing at Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Arts
  • Friday April 12 at 8:15pm Ryan Lee Crosby performing at the New Roxy
  • Saturday April 13 at 1pm Ryan Lee Crosby performing at the Paramount Marquee Stage
  • Saturday April 13 at 3pm Ryan Lee Crosby performing at the Bluesberry Cafe

Album Review - GravelRoad Mississippi Time

Album Review - GravelRoad Mississippi Time

"It probably didn't feel that way at the time, but backing up the irascible deep south blues-bastard T-Model Ford at the start of the decade was the best thing that ever happened to GravelRoad.  Ford might have gone to the great scrapyard in the sky five years ago, but his renegade spirit still looms over his former charges - and it's palpable on this latest release.

Recorded in spit-and-shit fashion at Mississippi's Dial Back Sound, this is the Seattle outfit's strongest record yet.

Opener My Baby's Tryin' sets the frazzled pace, Stefan Zillioux howling like the Wolf on Smokestack Lightnin' Roll Me Like A Stone is jittery and wired, all caffeine and stomach cramps, betraying the band's all-night sessions.  Get It Right! and Left Me Twice are heavy headlong chargers, while Demonstar and 149 Delta yawn with the kind of desert-rock emptiness that makes you feel lonely in a crowded room.  

Somewhere down there, the old devil is leering his approval."
