You can listen to the blues anywhere, but in the Delta, you can experience the blues with your whole being. The sound of live music drifting out from the front porch of a roadhouse into a wide Delta sky. The heat of a juke joint crowded with people dancing. The crunch of dirt under your feet at the grave or Robert Johnson. The feel of vintage vinyl under your fingers at Cathead Records.
In the Delta, the blues is everywhere, not just in your headphones or your car stereo. Sure, that's a great place to start, but let the blues inside you and you'll feel the roots of American music, not just hear it.
