"All the blues that's fit to print"
Short newsletter this month 'cause Old Man Kringle has us all working overtime........

Yup. In addition to running a store, a website, a handful of social media pages, producing our weekly Sounds Around Town calendar, serving on a couple nonprofit boards, working on next month's film festival, (always) working on April's Juke Joint Festival, etc., etc., I'm also trying to enjoy a bit of the holidays. Hope y'all are, too!
So, this month's CAT HEAD UPDATE will be brief and a little heavy on the "SHOP NOW" hype. After all, we are upon the US Postal Service's Christmas shipping deadlines. Please act accordingly. Rinse. And repeat.
As always, we're ready for you to visit. Check out our Clarksdale 365 music scene (including over a dozen annual festivals) on Cat Head's Music Calendar at; scroll down past my weekly Sounds Around Town snapshot to next year's festivals and the month-at-a-glance Music Calendar.
