Mississippi Delta Region: The Blues

Date: 
Wednesday, April 19, 2017 to Sunday, April 30, 2017

Come with us to learn how a place and its people, a long thread from the past into the present, have shaped a musical tradition: the Blues. We will explore the triangle from Natchez, Mississippi to Clarksdale, Mississippi to Memphis, Tennessee - we'll learn from legendary musicians who still remember the jukejoints to young musicians infusing the style today. We will kick-off our trip by volunteering at the Juke Joint Music Festival in Clarksdale!
 

Cost: $1800

April 18 - April 30

In partnership with Champlain Valley Union High School's Nexus Program
