The Clarksdale Sessions is a CD that you will keep playing for years to come. The Songs take you from the Mississippi Jukes to a Saturday Night in the Big City.
The music brings to mind a dark steaming night in the Mississippi Delta to that of sitting by the Banks of a River trailing your hand in the water contemplating love lost, love gained or just thinking about what you are going to do with your life. This CD will make you laugh, dance, or just long to sit and chill out for a while.
