Owner Roger Stolle, explained to me that he had more fun working with Bluesmen the likes of T-Model Ford or Super Chikan then he did in his previous life as a St. Louis corporate executive. During my latest visit, Roger seemed to be quite calm while he waited on customers, gave directions, made coffee, put out chairs for guests, took pictures, answered the phone, and checked inventory. Roger is certainly a Blues Dude and has had musicians performing at the store such as: James "Super Chikan" Johnson, KM Williams, Washboard Jackson, Elam McKnight, Keith Carter, Robert Belfour, Honeyboy Edwards, T-Model Ford, Ray-Ray, Louis Gearshift Youngblood, Terry Bean, Mississippi Mudd, Terry "Big T" Williams, Robert Kimbrough, most of the Burnsides, and Jimbo Mathus. Whenever you're in the Clarksdale, MS area, stop in to see Roger and his pretend Cat "Sadi Mae Taylor Stolle", as he'll have the music you need, and he'll know what Blues Events are going on.
