Highway 61 is the most iconic road trip to experience in America that brings you back to the roots of the blues and all modern music. This trip starts in New Orleans and will take you all the way up to Chicago. Follow the cotton pickers and sharecroppers during the great migration.
The Blues is alive and kicking. See for yourself!
As a music and blues fan you will really enjoy this trip along Highway 61. It will not only be music on the road but meetings with locals and the different food traditions, a lovely countryside to travel through. Walk in the footsteps of Muddy Water, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, BB King, Bessie Smith, Elmore James, Howlin´ Wolf and other greats.
When I got this book in my hand I was totally blown away. I have not made the trip by my self but here you can really get a feeling what its all about. The pictures is some of the most amazing I’v ever seen, it’s like you hear the beat and feel the smell.
