The Holy Moly - My American Home - Clarksdale, Mississippi

Last year my husband and I did a bit of redecorating in our home to allow us to host gatherings and events for leisure learning the way we like it. We added more comfortable seating in the theatre and a better table arrangement in our dining room. Our first use of the new arrangement will be in April during the Delta Blues Dulcimer Revival and the Juke Joint Festival. Here are a few pictures of the set-up in our home (which is an old Masonic Temple).

The Holy Moly

Work on The Holy Moly is almost complete.  There are three occupied apartments and one unoccupied apartment on the ground floor. An ice cream parlour/coffee shop/old fashion soda fountain will be opening soon -- during summer 2014.

The second floor of The Holy Moly is being restored as a gathering space for intimate concerts that include poetry/story telling with film presentation.  It is exciting to think that things I have enjoyed in the past can be resumed here in this part of the world, as I settle-in to the Mississippi Delta.

In my personal experience, I have learned that a comfort zone must be created before learning can occur.  That's what is happening right now at The Holy Moly.  A comfort zone is being created -- air-conditioning and heating is being installed throughout the entire second floor, along with a few other necessities that make life more pleasant anywhere.

New Apartment & Retail Shop in Clarksdale, Mississippi

Do you love the Mississippi Delta? Do you want to teach music? Have you always wanted to teach art?

A new apartment/retail shop will be ready soon, in the downtown historic blues precinct of Clarksdale, Mississippi!

The apartment is located at 216 Third Street, Clarksdale, Mississippi, and is on the first floor in the northwest corner of The Holy Moly -- a revitalized masonic temple building -- right down the street from the world-famous Rock & Blues Museum, Delta Blues Museum, Bluesberry CAFE, Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Arts, Hambone Art Gallery, Red's, and Ground Zero Blues Club! The Holy Moly just might be the best location in the world for you and your students.
