The roots of American music are firmly planted in the South. There’s no better way to understand southern music or life than to visit the lyrical landscape of the Delta. Here Antebellum Homes and Plantations are surrounded by soulful blues, brassy jazz, Cajun accordions, calliopes and gospel choirs. Come listen to music.
Chicago, the city that arguably defined the Jazz Age, Prohibition, gangster wars, flappers and boom times, thrived and survived the ’20s. And like the rest of America, it started the decade like a giddy adolescent, grew up in 1929 when gang wars built to a bloody crescendo and the stock market crashed.
One Hundred Years ago Detroit was a boomtown, come visit the City, learn of the era when the automobile industry exploded, when Alcohol was Prohibited and when the migration of African American musicians into the City created wonderful new sounds.
