Music in the Deep South
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.
We all know people who go on holiday and come back not with tales of the major tourist sites, but of hearing their favourite music played live and loud at an obscure but infamous bar or club. Live music venues are abound in the Deep South from the college rock scene in Athens, Georgia to the jazz and Cajun clubs in Louisiana; from the Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee and the legendary studios of Alabama's Muscle Shoals to Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero blues club in Clarksdale, Mississippi. There's live music year-round, performed in authentic and intimate settings where the memories will last a lifetime.
