An exploration of what remains of Mississippi’s once-thriving juke joint culture, this documentary film, shot in and around Clarksdale, MS, centers around Red’s Lounge proprietor Red Paden, a true Delta character and jack-of-all-trades, who has been running his blues and beer joint for more than three decades. Toldthrough live music performances, character-driven interviews, and on-camerablues experiences, We Juke Up in Here! Takes viewers below the surface of the quasi-legal world of real Delta jukes. Filmmakers Jeff Konkel and Roger Stolle will introduce the film and participate in a post-screening Q&A. To purchase tickets by phone please call 901.544.6208.
