    Arkansas Times Blues Bus to Clarksdale Juke Joint Festival

    9 a.m. - ??

    The bus leaves from the parking deck at 2nd and Main, in Little Rock.

    From the Arkansas Times:

    For the first time ever the Times is taking two buses to this year's Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, Miss., which calls itself "half blues festival, half small-town fair and all about the Delta." Over 100 blues musicians will perform over the weekend at classic juke joints, blues clubs and small stages ... We'll be heading down on April 11 at 9 a.m., and the trip will come complete with live music en route: Blues Boy Jag will play on one bus and Jason Hale on the other. We'll also stop for lunch at the legendary Hollywood Cafe in Tunica.
