Carlos Elliot Jr. is from Colombia, but on a visit to Clarksdale, he became aware of the music of people like R. L. Burnside and Jessie Mae Hemphill. Since then, he has amazed audiences all over the world with his unique style of blues, and last night, at the iconic Red’s Juke Joint in Clarksdale, he celebrated the release of a new CD with his band The Cornlickers, to a standing-room-only crowd that spilled out into Sunflower Avenue despite the cold weather. Red’s is the real deal blues experience, with big oil drums cookers of barbecue smoking outside, and it is a must-visit experience during Juke Joint Festival.
