Life in Clarksdale

The Table Hill trio is still enjoying Clarksdale together. A few days ago, Phil celebrated his 60th birthday with TWO pieces of pie at Resthaven Restaurant, a loved and local family restaurant, just up from the famous crossroads of highways 49 & 61. Happy Birthday, Phil!

Soaking up the culture of Clarksdale, as well as adding a lot to it, Phil and Adrian recently played during a breakfast hour at the Bluesberry Cafe, which is just around the corner and a few doors down from The Holy Moly. It's a great little place for travellers, as well as locals, to hear the blues on weekend mornings and every Monday night.

There's been a bit more music played on Third Street in Clarksdale, since Phil arrived -- starting at The Holy Moly and ending at Deak Harp's place, "Mississippi Saxophones and Blues Emporium." Table Hill is looking forward to seeing and hearing Deak Down Under -- what a great name for a blues harp tour! 

Carla continues her blogging and recording and appreciating the fact that there's a little more music in Mississippi since Phil arrived.
