RIP Sarah Moore 9/20/1935 - 10/30/2009. This information comes via Roger Stolle. Sarah Moore, best known as the proprietor of the popular restaurant and music venue Sarah's Kitchen in Clarksdale, died on Oct 30th as a result of a car accident. She was 74. The list of blues musicians that graced Miss Sarah's stage through the years includes Robert "Bilbo" Walker, T-Model Ford, Lightnin' Malcolm, The Deep Cuts, Super Chikan, Louisiana Red, various Burnsides/Kimbroughs, Sam Carr, Dave Riley, Mississippi Marvel, Terry "Big T" Williams, Wesley "Junebug" Jefferson, David Lee Durham, Pat Thomas, KM Williams, Rev Peyton's Big Damn Band, "Mr. Johnnie" Billington, Big Pete Pearson, etc etc. Miss Sarah was as well-known for her delicious soul food plate lunches as she was her festival weekend blues blowouts. The Delta Blues Education Fund also held regular blues classes for local kids at Sarah's Kitchen for several years. She will truly be missed as both a beautiful person and an integral part of the blues community in Clarksdale.
