See you in 2018 for the Bruce Telecom Lighthouse Blues Festival!
We are honoured to once again have Stan Street provide the artwork for the Bruce Telecom Lighthouse Blues Festival.
The biggest influence on Street’s art is the perspective of being a blues musician. Growing up in New York he was influenced by his father and uncle - classical percussionists - who encouraged his creativity. He took up: sax, harmonica, percussion and singing, accumulating credits in award winning blues groups. He tours the Canadian blues festival circuit as well as blues festivals and honkytonks of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. Although Street called Florida his "home" for more than 25 years, he has moved to Clarksdale, Mississippi, where he finds common ground with the primordial blues of the Delta, and also will be closer to New Orleans, Chicago, and Kansas City.
Open since 2005, Hambone Gallery is an inviting space located in historic downtown Clarksdale owned and operated by Stan and his wife, Dixie Street. Building their vision from a vacant building, the two have crafted a venue that is both unique and welcoming to art lovers, artists, musicians, and storytellers from around the globe.
