CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

About Delta Blues Museum
Established in 1979 by the Carnegie Public Library Board of Trustees and re-organized as a stand-alone museum in 1999, the Delta Blues Museum is Mississippi's oldest music museum and the nation's first museum dedicated to the American art form known as the Blues. A 2013 recipient of the IMLS National Medal for Museum and Library Services--the nation's highest honor for museum and library service to the community--and a 2014 winner of the National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Award, the Delta Blues Museum is dedicated to creating a welcoming place where visitors find meaning, value and perspective by exploring the history and heritage of the unique American musical art form, the Blues. The Museum is honored to be a Great River Road Interpretive Center.

Through its DEEPER ROOTS campaign, the museum seeks $1.2 million for new and enhanced exhibits: Expanded exhibits, including those to be housed in the Muddy Waters Addition, will enable the cultural organization to better preserve and display the history and work of blues artists from the Mississippi Delta, and advance the Museum's ability to "tell" stories that inspire and educate future generations about this important American art form.

DBM Logo white




 
Catch the Mississippi Public Broadcasting premiere of
"FROM THE CROSSROADS TO THE WHITE HOUSE,"
a True Delta Project documentary film,
TONIGHT on MPB!



The Delta Blues Museum Band is featured in a documentary film making its debut on Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) television on July 14th at 10 p.m.!  Check your local listings to find MPB TV in your area. 

 
(Not in Mississippi? The documentary will be made available online immediately following tonight's broadcast--link below.)


From the Crossroads to the White House follows a group of young musicians on their journey from the Mississippi Delta to the White House to receive a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award presented by First Lady Michelle Obama. Five members of the Delta Blues Museum Band performed for Mrs. Obama and guests.

Last year, the Delta Blues Museum--Mississippi's first music museum dedicated to the Blues--was recognized with the award for having one of the best youth programs in the nation. The Museum's Arts and Education program helps preserve the blues tradition by teaching young Mississippians to play and sing the blues. The program, which was originally created by the late Mr. Johnnie Billington, continues to educate blues musicians who help keep Clarksdale's dynamic live music scene alive. 

From the Crossroads to the White House is one of a series of award-winning documentaries about the legacy of the Delta blues from producers Lee Quinby and Erickson Blakney of the True Delta Project.

DELTA BLUES MUSEUM TO HOST A

RECEPTION AND BOOK SIGNING FOR ROGER STOLLE, AUTHOR OF HIDDEN HISTORY OF MISSISSIPPI BLUES

Wednesday, October 5

5 - 7 pm

Signing, reading, music, food

Free, open to the public

Hidden History

The Delta Blues Museum will host a reception and book signing for Roger Stolle, author of Hidden History of Mississippi Blues on Wednesday, October 5, from 5 to 7 pm. Meet the author, buy a signed book, and enjoy music and refreshments.

Free, open to the public.

Travel through the hallowed juke joints and cotton fields with author Roger Stolle as he recounts the history of Mississippi blues and the musicians who have kept it alive. Some of these bluesmen remain to carry on this proud legacy, while others have passed on, but Hidden History of Mississippi Blues ensures none will be forgotten.

"Placed together, the words and photos of Hidden History of Mississippi Blues bring a music, history and people to the printed page in a purposely intimate way leaving readers rooting for the bluesmen and pondering the future of music." -DeSoto magazine

"If you don't know a lot about blues music and the Delta musicians who birthed it, lived it and kept it alive--in spite of the more popular modern American musical genres spawned from it--then Hidden History can rectify that in as little as 119 pages of easy-to-understand text." -Amazon

Roger Stolle owns Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art, a blues store in Clarksdale, Mississippi, as well as his own music and tourism marketing service. He is a Blues Revue magazine columnist, WROX radio deejay, XM/Sirius radio correspondent, and Juke Joint Festival cofounder. Through his Cat Head Presents record label, Stolle has produced several critically acclaimed blues CDs/DVDs; he coproduced the award-winning film M for Mississippi: A Road Trip through the Birthplace of the Blues. Hidden History of Mississippi Blues is his first book. He was educated at the University of Cincinnati and worked for thirteen years in the advertising and marketing world prior to entering the music business.

Lou Bopp is an award-winning commercial location photographer who has traveled the world on assignment for clients such as Time Warner, Deutsche Bank, McCann-Erickson, Amex, Sports Illustrated, Y&R and many more. His subjects range from celebrities to CEOs, musicians to technicians.
