The Mississippi Delta Summer Blues – #G8Way2theBlues Progress!
Wow, is the summer finally over? College football kicks off this week marking the official start of the fall season. But, being August in the Mississippi Delta, it’s HOT and I’m not just talking about the temperature!
The thermometers rise has not cooled off the progress from here alongside Blues Highway 61 at the Gateway to the Blues Visitor Center and soon to be Museum. In fact, August has seen this project get hotter than a Mississippi Delta Juke Joint on a Saturday night!
Check out these two brief videos on our project. The Gateway to the Blues Museum now has a roof and four walls
I’m also honored to announce that Mississippi Delta native and blues superstar Eden Brent will be featured in one of the exhibitions several video segments. Here’s a sneak peak from her shoot at one of the Mississippi Blues Trail’s newest marker locations – The Hollywood Café.
So, with a big thanks to all who have helped to construct the building, film the videos and keep the Gateway to the Blues Museum project moving, we say cheers to you. And, cheers to the promise of the fall season, the cooler temps however will not be able to slow down our progress from here alongside the blues highway in Tunica!
