Experience the Blues

     where they were born

An unforgettable journey into the land that spawned the single most important root source of modern popular music.
You'll find facts you didn't know, places you've never seen, and you'll gain a new appreciation for the area that gave birth to the blues.

The Mississippi Blues Trail markers tell stories through words and images of bluesmen and women and how the places where they lived and the times in which they existed–and continue to exist–influenced their music. The sites run the gamut from city streets to cotton fields, train depots to cemeteries, and clubs to churches. There is a lot to share, and it's just down the Mississippi Blues Trail.
