​MISSISSIPPI BLUESMEN: Big George Brock (MPB)

Runtime: 60 minutes

Producers: Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB)

Octogenarian Big George Brock was born in Grenada, Mississippi, but grew up on a cotton plantation just outside of Clarksdale, so it is fitting that he returned to Clarksdale to film this live concert performance at world-famous Ground Zero Blues Club. Joined by the late-great blues guitarist Riley Coatie and Coatie's family band, The Houserockers, Brock entertains the audience with selections from his comeback album, Club Caravan, and songs he learned firsthand from musical friends like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Jimmy Reed. Produced by Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB).


Come back to Clarksdale in April to see Big George Brock perform "live" at Juke Joint Festival!
