Where "Little Boogaloo" earned her nickname
Greenville, Mississippi, sits midway between Memphis in the north and New Orleans in the south, a city of 40,000 that hugs one of the innumerable bends of the river referred to by many as the “Mighty Mississippi.”
Why Memphis is still the official home of The Blues
Memphis, Tennessee, standing on the meandering bends of the Mississippi River, is the city of Beale Street, the “Official Home of the Blues”.
River of the blues
Hello Mississippi, the river of the blues. It was around its delta region – an area known for extreme poverty – that great local musicians and storytellers gave birth to the great musical genres of jazz, gospel and blues. Traveling along America’s greatest waterway, you will encounter a world where traditions are still strong, and blues-men still sing about the reality of their own lives.
