Despre locatie:

“The Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival is held in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Clarksdale is located in Coahoma County which is full of Blues history. Often called the “Birthplace of the Blues” it is home to much Blues History which can be found at the Delta Blues Museum and at historical sites throughout the area.”

Festivalul din acest an este dedicat in intregime uneia dintre cele mai mari voci a gospel-ului, blues-ului si muzicii soul, Sam Cooke (n. 22 ianuarie 1931 – d. 11 decembrie 1964). Cooke s-a nascut in Clarksdale si si-a inceput cariera muzicala intr-un cor de gospel pentru copii. In scurt timp a devenit liderul formatiei Soul Stirrers iar dupa lansarea hit-ului β€œYou Send Me”, a fost desemnat cel mai bun vocalist de muzica soul.
