2023 Juke Joint Fest was LIT

I had a blast at this year’s Juke Joint Fest in Clarksdale, MS. Amazing music, and amazing people. Great memories. Cody Cotton and I left Austin bound for Dallas to pick up a Juke Joint Boy regular Clay Stinnet – he is one of my favorite people. After a brief stop at Clay’s we hit the road. We had a jam session on the ride, me on ukulele and clay playing drums on his cell phone. We rolled into Helena, Arkansas at about 3:30 in the morning and decided to crash for a little while in the truck. The next morning we woke and drove to Clarksdale with a brief stop at Muddy Waters’s old residence near the plantation. We opened for Robert Kimbrough Sr at Reds and played a second set when he took a break. We closed Red’s that night.

Saturday was bright and early as I was hired to backline and run sound on the Stone Pony stage. Cody sat in with Lady Trucker at 3:00 and it slayed. We played at 4:30. We were exhausted after that. We drove back to Texas at 6 am. It was an awesome trip.

Junior Kimbrough’s Juke Joint on Google Earth

Few people know that you can scrub back in time on Google Earth revealing all kinds of fun historical stuff. I even found Hitler's lair before we bombed it into oblivion (mess with the US and Allies and find out). I went through the years and found Junior's Juke Joint outside of Holly Springs, Mississippi. Here is a Google Earth breakdown. Enjoy.
