Interesting Articles

The Washington Post has an interesing article about a famous blues fan and club owner: Morgan Freeman, Down Home: "Freeman and Luckett opened the club in May 2001, transforming a 1900s cotton warehouse into a gritty concert venue where the music is earsplitting and the decor is frat house-meets-dance hall."

The Miami Herald also travels to Mississippi with the article Love the blues? It all began in joints like these. "Moreover, the blues here is no series of historical markers erected by the Hellhound-On-My-Trail Antiquarian Society: Clarksdale has shops, music rooms, juke joints and major festivals celebrating this direct ancestor of rock 'n' roll. And it's far enough inland that it escaped damage from Hurricane Katrina."
