Trip Highlights


Why They Sing the Blues is an unforgettable journey into the land that spawned the single most important root source of modern American popular music- The Delta Blues.

This 12-day journey tells the untold stories of Southern 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 tour will take you to Nashville, Memphis, Clarksville, and all through the Mississippi Delta down to Jackson and New Orleans where you will Hear Live music, walk the city streets, visit the radio stations, see the cotton fields, visit Blues museums to learn why musicians such as Robert Johnson Howlin Wolf, Muddy, Waters, BB King, and countless others sang the blues way down in the Mississippi Delta.

Whether you're a die-hard blues fan or a casual traveler in search of an interesting trip, 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.
