Honoring our Military in July

Celebrating Blues Veterans

Several Delta blues artists served in the U.S. military, among them are Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, B.B. King, Bukka White, John Bray, John Lee Hooker, and Josh "Razorblade" Stewart. Hear their recordings on Delta Blues, a two-CD set produced exclusively for the Delta Blues Museum. Take a virtual field trip / video tour drawn from the Museum's exhibits and the Explore & Learn educational feature, "The Blues & The Great Migration," to follow paths taken out of the Delta by blues artists. See historic photos of the Delta sites that birthed the blues in Panny Mayfield's Live from the Mississippi Delta. Trace the trail of the Delta blues masters from home to the world in Chasing the Blues, a new travel guide to the "land where the blues began." View our current exhibit about Trumpet Records, which recorded U.S. Navy veteran Elmore James' classic, "Dust My Broom."

The Delta Blues Museum is again a proud participant of the Blue Star Museum Program benefitting active-duty military personnel and their families. This year's program runs through Labor Day. Read the Press Release here.
