The Blues Highway
….with a taste of 66
SELF DRIVE CAR
AS A PASSENGER
18 Days of The Blues Highway with a taste of 66…The Blues Highway stretches from New Orleans to Chicago
A Road is a road, but sometimes it’s more.
Sometimes a road sings. Drive the old Blues Highway between New Orleans and Chicago in search of music, and you’ll find it everywhere you turn.
Soul, Gospel and R&B spill out of car windows and church doors. Sometimes the music is played on guitars picked with calloused fingers in juke joints tucked under pine trees.
Muddy Waters rode the Blues Highway. So did John Lee Hooker, Bessie Smith and B.B. King.
Elvis knew it too; his rock and roll is as rooted in the delta as a cypress tree in the lowland muck.
It is a journey for lovers of classic antebellum architecture, civil war history, magnificent photogenic country, ghost towns, cultural variety, musical roots and the breath of the great Mississippi.
Just imagine driving a car, riding a Harley or being driven towards the burning sky ahead……
