When it comes to American music, all roads lead to the Deep South. There’s no better way to understand the life of Deep South USA than to take a tour through its musical landscape – soulful blues, brassy jazz, country twang, Cajun accordions, riverboat calliopes and gospel choirs.

Trip

Our engaging guides, local music experts Robert, Roy and Sylvester, will ensure you return with tales of phenomenal live shows at obscure but infamous bars and clubs scattered around the Deep South. From the Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee to Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero blues bar in Clarksdale, Mississippi from Po’ Monkey’s Juke Joint deep in the Delta to Angelle’s Whiskey River Landing in, Lafayette, Louisiana. With our help you will meet colorful characters such as Elvis’s boyhood friends James, Guy and Sam as well as Dr. Luther the Delta State University’s music lecturer and Charley Patton expert Steve.
