Come here every year and always find something new. For the true afficionado of music, this is a treasure trove of books, cd's , records of any form. Even better at the Juke Joint Festival when they host a variety of performances from local musicians.

Incredible book store/CD store with everything imaginable regarding the Blues music! A person could spend hours browsing, learning, just enjoying the amazing array of Blues history and written and visual illustration of the musicians and their stories. Thanks
