From Nashville to New Orleans - A USA Music Road Tour of a Lifetime - 15th - 25th October 2019

Let’s Rock ‘n’ Roll our way across the Atlantic on a British Airways direct flight to the Music City of Nashville, Tennessee to begin our ten day road tour. We will cruise along the ‘Blues Highway’ onto the Gospel City of Memphis, before continuing to Jackson, Mississippi - City of Soul, Rhythm and Blues then getting on down to the Big Easy Jazz capital of the world New Orleans, Louisiana.

We will travel together in our own minibus touring the best sights, listening to live music daily and dining in authentic eateries to enjoy the famous hospitality of the Deep South and I will accompany and guide you throughout.

We have put this 10-day bespoke guided tour together for a small group of 10 people in conjunction with our friend Maggi, a tour operator, specialising in tailor-made holidays to the States (‘America As You Like It’).

This fabled corner of the US is the birthplace of American music: where Soul and Mississippi Blues fused with Country to create Rock'n'Roll, and Jazz took root and grew in New Orleans.
