Cat Head is the Delta’s Blues Central #SunflowerBlues2013


When Roger Stolle moved to Clarksdale and opened Cat Head as a retail record store, art gallery and book store, he filled a gap that had been created by Jim O’Neal’s departure from Clarksdale and the resulting shutdown of the Stackhouse Delta Blues Mart and its Rooster Blues Records label. Cat Head remains a wonderful store, full of vinyl, CD’s, folk art, T-shirts, posters and books, and has also become a record label, and a source for blues information about not only the Mississippi Delta, but elsewhere in the state as well. These days, Stolle continues to give back to the music he loves so much, running a blues show on XM Radio, producing a webcasted blues reality show Moonshine & Mojo Hands and producing wonderful documentaries like We Juke Up In Here. Cat Head should be any blues lover’s first stop on arriving in Clarksdale.
