“Clarksdale, MS is THE attraction”

Stan Streets Hambone Art Gallery
Ranked #6 of 13 things to do in Clarksdale
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 July 2014

If you can get to Clarksdale, MS, you need to spend time cruising the entire town's rich assortment of southern blues history attractions. Included are; the Hambone Gallery, the Rock & Blues Museum, Ground Zero (Morgan Freeman's joint), Hopson Plantation, and a bunch of other places that, together, make for an incredible experience. If you're lucky, you'll get a chance to chat with either Dixie or Debby at Hambone, and Marc at the Museum. They can tell stories about Clarksdale that will make your time irrelevant. Hopson has to be seen, understood, and photographed --- and then you'll have the challenge of trying to explain it to your friends as a real experience. One real good thing about Clarksdale's location is that it's between Memphis and Baton Rouge on US 61 (the Blues Highway). If you've got the time to experience all three, and their exceptional musical cultures, you'll never be the same.

Hambone was recommended by our Innkeeper, Bubba, from the Five and Dime Lofts. What a great venue and the people were so welcoming. We'll go back for any event!

Want to buy some awesome art at reasonable prices? ...listen to live BLUES? kick back with a drink or two? .. meet legendary musicians? ... THIS is the place for you =) --- small, warm and intimate gallery with an eclectic collection of many 'media' displays... Stan Street is a multi-talented musician and more ...

I arrived on a slow day. Stan stopped, talked to me, and gave me plenty of advice on what to see. I talked with both Stan and his wife, listen to them play music, and enjoyed their company.

It's everything you love about Clarksdale Mississippi! Great looking unfussy art on the walls, a lot of it created by owner/bluesharp master, Stan Street. His feisty, redheaded wife, Dixie, will serve you a beer in between sets on the tin roofed, rough-wood stage where she plays the hill country drums with vigor! This is a friendly, good time place where stars come to sit in and town big shots mingle with blues travelers and everybody has a great time. Such a nice change from the tourist joints, don't miss it when you go to 2nd St to tour the Rock N Blues Museum.
