Reds Juke Joint

Last October I traveled with a tour group on a 5 day blues, rock, soul, and gospel musical adventure to Memphis, TN and Clarksdale, MS organized by radio station WXPN and the World Cafe in Philadelphia. Enjoyed this trip immensely. Got to hear great music and visit studios and venues most tourists don't get to see. On the tour, David Dye, host of the World Cafe, interviewed the artists that you can hear on a World Cafe broadcast.

The last venue we visited was Reds juke joint in Clarksdale MS. Here we listened to rockin blues music from Robert "Bilbo" Walker and his band. Soaked in red light, my photo above captures Reds atmosphere, with Walker on stage right. We were close up to the musicians for many performances, like this, making the experience extra special.
