Do you like road trips?
If you love them like we do, you should check out the Blues Highway along the Mississippi River: an unforgettable journey from New Orleans, Louisiana to Nashville, Tennessee with music around every corner. From the birthplaces of celebrated blues artists, vinyl record shops, live music, recording venues to Southern culinary delights, every stop has a story or a music to tell! xo Bea & Rod

Entering Mississippi, the temperarure dropped, the blazing sun disappeared behind the clouds, the steam rose off the roads creating a mist. A refreshing and unique experience in this beautiful state. #mississippi #blueshighway #highway61 #birthplaceofmusic #roadtrip #blues #travel #usa #drive #sign

Genuinely awe inspiring in person. Calming and vast. The sunset, which my useless phone camera can't pick up, was rake streaks of dusky & bright pink and gold as the sun sank a neon red.

So we left Baton Rouge to head to Vicksburg. We hit torrential rain, battled through it and pulled up in Natchez for a rest. Then the storm caught us up! Luckily we managed to find a cafe before the heavens opened once more ..

Hallo liebe Bluesfreunde,

heute müssen wir ein Meilen machen. Diese wollen wir größtenteils auf dem Highway 61 ... den Blues Highway verbringen.
In Memphis sind wir gleich am Mississippi entlang gefahren und dann auf den 61 gekommen. Memphis machet jut. War doch schön mit uns, aber sei nicht traurig, dass wir Nashville immer vorziehen würden.

Das erste Ziel war Tunica. Dort im Delta Blues Visitor Center haben wir und mit Infos eingedeckt und einen Stempel bekommen.
Das Museum haben wir nicht betreten, aber der Stopp war dennoch lohnenswert.

Die Straße ist gut. Jede Menge Casinos, Baumwoll- und Sojafelder. Es macht noch Spaß hier zu fahren. Wir haben auch ein paar Agrarflieger beobachten dürfen. Super Flugkünstler. Wie die in ein paar Metern Höhe über deine Felder rasen und enge Kurven fliegen um irgendein Zeug zu versprühen... sehenswert. Wie im Kino.

In Clarksdale rufen unsere Mägen nach Nahrung. Direkt an der Devils Crossroads Kreuzung der HWY 49 & 61, wo irgendein Bluesmusiker seinen Seele an den Teufel verkauft hat, um der beste Blueser zu werden, gibt es den absoluten Kultladen "Abe´s Bar-B-Q". Da will ich rein. Brezelgirl will lieber Subway - Brezelwoman ist auch nicht sicher. Ich fahre, ich setzte mich durch. Kommt ja selten genug vor, obwohl meine mitreisenden das Gegenteil behaupten würden.

Abe´s ist aber tatsächlich berühmt. Viele Magazine (auch von der gourmetigen Sorte) berichten über den kultigen Imbiss.
Das BBQ soll seit 1924 einzigartig sein.

Was für ein Laden! Self Seating. Alle Gerichte selbst gemacht. Nix fertiges. Bezahlt wird beim rausgehen.
Ich nehme ein BeefSandwich mit Krautsalat.
Brezelwoman nimmt die berühmten Tamales mit Kraut und Cracker. Brezelgirl bestellt zwei Scheiben Toast... mit Käse...und als add... Tomate.
So sieht Risikofreude aus. :) Ja, die Bilder sprechen für sich. Unter den Tamales konnten wir uns nicht so richtig was vorstellen.
Es sind in Maisblättern gegarte Maisteige, die mit Fleisch, Bohnen, Käse usw. angereichert werden können. Nicht einfach herzustellen. Die mexikanischen Erntehelfer haben das Gericht bei schwarzen Arbeitern auf den Baumwollplantagen populär gemacht.

Rolled into Rolling Fork, MS to find the birthplace of Muddy Waters. Learned about the Delta Bear and met an artist who made artifacts from old cotton gin parts. #blueshighway

Met Pat Thomas, son of “Son” Thomas at the Highway 61 Blues Museum. He played us some songs, told us about the 1 time he performed in NYC, gave us a domino and let me touch his guitar. Found Johnny Winter’s plaque and then trekked to Cleveland, MS to see the mythical birthplace of the blues, Dockery Farms. #blueshighway

Dallo Stato del #Minnesota arriva fino a #NewOrleans, in #Louisiana in un percorso di circa 2300 chilometri, seguendo più o meno fedelmente il corso del fiume #Mississippi.
E’ la splendida #Highway61, The #BluesHighway, progettata nel 1926, che ho amato tantissimo percorrere soprattutto seguendo il percorso originale!!
La OLD Highway 61 infatti ha ben poco a che vedere con la Highway: il tratto che con qualche difficoltà ho cercato di percorrere fedelmente , si presenta oggi come una lunga serie di strade di campagna minori, a ovest della US 61 attuale; percorrerla può non essere semplice in quanto il tratto originale non è solitamente segnalato e le strade riportano spesso un altro nome.
Ma è un’ esperienza indimenticabile che ti riporta al passato della enorme migrazione degli afroamericani dal sud al nord degli #StatiUniti tra il 1920 e il 1930, quella migrazione di cui si parla molto poco ma che ha cambiato totalmente il volto attuale degli Stati Uniti di oggi. ❤️🇺🇸

We found YZ Ealey playing with 2 other guitarists in the only open restaurant in Natchez, MS on a Monday night. He’s still pretty lively at 82 years old. After his set ended at 9PM, he said he likes to start early so he can end early. That wrapped up our first day on the Mississippi #BluesHighway

Day 7: Natchez, Mississippi.
How big is the Mississippi River I can never tell, you must see it with your own eyes! And after, go see the Under The Hill Saloon, where Mark Twain used to sleep during his voyages along the river.
But if you wanna listen to some really good music @smoots_grocery is the place you can’t miss!!!

Continue from pervious NOLA post ... .

After Mississippi, The Blues Highway took us into NEW ORLEANS! NOLA, The Big Easy, The Crescent City, the Birthplace of Jazz. Use whatever nickname you want, just make sure you visit this place! It's another one of my FAVORITE cities! I LOVE the music, the food is great, and lots of culture to learn! .
.
Here is some history for you! Did you know .... Canal Street is considered the “neutral ground” of NOLA?!?! I found that out during my visit. What does that mean? Canal Street was the dividing line between the Creole French Quarter side and the American side. Tensions were often high between the two groups, but Canal Street was a neutral ground. People today still call the median "the neutral ground". Interesting, right!?!?

. "M-I crooked letter Crooked letter, I, Crooked Letter Crooked letter, I, Humpback humpback, I, Mississippi!" Highway 61 Blues was the road trip route my husband and I traveled with my cousins (from Germany). From Memphis, we went through the cities of Tunica, Clarksdale, and Vicksburg. The Mississippi Delta is the "Birthplace of the Blues - This is Where the Soul of Man Never Dies." We took a journey through the hardships/history of our county and the impact of blues music. It was an experience I'll hold close to my heart.

When you’re speechless because you finally get a chance to play in Red Stick... Tonight, at Tin Roof Brewing Company, I’ll be picking the six and (==POSSIBLY==) tickling the ivory from 6pm until 8pm!
If you’re in the Baton Rouge area, like craft beer, and/or like live music, this is the place to be this evening!

This is Ground Zero Blues club in Clarksdale, Mississippi. It is co-owned by Morgan Freeman. This place is incredible - really. We had fried green tomatoes, catfish, and a delta taco (it blew my mind). The food was great...the service was awesome (our server's name was Fran - like one of my besties). I'll definitely be going back! Thank you for a great experience, Fran! PS. That guitar waa signed by John Lee Hooker. I was a little star struck. ❤️

"Oh, God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe said, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God said, "No" Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want, Abe, but
The next time you see me comin', you better run"
Well, Abe said, "Where d'you want this killin' done?"
God said, "Out on Highway 61"
