The heart and soul of American Music beats in the history of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. These are the towns where the inspiration for our uniquely American Music styles were born and where they grew to maturity. On this three city tour you’ll hear Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Rock n’ Roll, Soul, Dixieland Jazz, and Cajun. Why, you’ll even have the chance to write and perform a song of your own.
Come and listen to the music that defines a nation. You learn the basics with Dixieland Jazz in New Orleans then hear the influence of Creole and Cajun Music in the Louisiana Bayous before embarking on the Mississippi Blue Trail. Armed with that rudimentary knowledge of Jazz you learn of slave music on the plantations, and hear how it co-mingled with Jazz, then moved north into the Cities of America after our slaves were freed. While Jazz and Blues were two distinct music forms – they also combined to create Rock n’ Roll. Join us on this great adventure and get your Mojo on.
