I'm planning to go to the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival in August. I'm wondering if it is possible to book accommodation in town and visit without a hire car (i.e. is the Festival walking distance from the centre of town?). I have a driving licence but am not at all confident in left hand drive or navigating outside of the UK. The festival website does not give a very clear location. I may also be alone for this part of the trip and want to feel safe to get around on foot.
Also is it feasable to travel by bus from Memphis to Clarksdale?
If anyone can advise me I would appreciate this. I have emailed Clarksdale.com and the festival website and am yet to receive any response.
