Frank Frost blows his harp onstage at the Sunflower River
Blues Festival in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
Sunflower Festival Time
Filmmaker David Stevens and artist Floyd Tunson first visited the Mississippi Delta more than 20 years ago. The people they met and the culture they encountered left an indelible impression. Always knowing they would one day return, they did just that during the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel festivals of 1995 and 1996. The most recent expedition to Clarksdale also took them into the surrounding hills of northern Mississippi, where they aquainted themselves with the people who make the music they love.
This page contains a few of the photographs taken by David Stevens. There are more in the hard copy edition of BLUES ACCESS.
