At the crossroads of the blues and rock n' roll is Clarksdale, Mississippi, where legend has it that Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil to learn the guitar. But at the city's flagship museum, the Delta Blues Museum, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, you don't have to go quite that far: The museum has a music education program that's been helping pass on the blues from one generation to the next.
