The Mississippi Delta is one of the most unique places on earth. Home to Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Ike Turner, Sam Cooke, Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner and more, it's culture has impacted the world.
And Propeller is teaming up with the Mighty Roots Music Festival and Save The Music on this unforgettable VIP trip for two people to explore the mysteries of the Delta. Here's what looks like...
Thursday (9/30): You'll travel to Memphis where you'll be picked up from the airport in a 1955 Cadillac by Tad Pierson and begin your journey to the Delta with some ROOTS drive by encounters of Graceland, Stax Studios, and Royal Studios. Then you'll head south along the backroads past such landmarks as Memphis Minnie's grave, the town where Robert Johnson grew up, and a journey through the cotton fields on old Highway 61 while Tad tells you about the history, mythos, and backstory of the area.
That evening you'll be dropped off at Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club, where your apartment for the weekend, dubbed "Good Ordinary" after a particular strain of cotton, awaits. Enjoy Thursday night real deal blues at one of the nation's finest Blues clubs from your reserved table – your apartment is literally right above the club.
Friday (10/1): Spend the morning wandering through quirky historic Clarksdale, including Cathead Delta Blues & Folk Art, or Deak's Mississippi Saxophones & Blues Emporium, or Hambone Art & Music, or maybe a cup of java at Meraki Roasting Company. With your VIP package to the Mighty Roots Music Festival featuring Deer Tick, Keller Williams and more, you won't have to worry about transportation to the festival, which starts at 5:30pm.
Saturday (10/2): Mighty Roots Music Festival! John Mohead will host you on site Saturday for a 20-minute backstage meet & greet before the music starts and share with you unique stories and history of the Mississippi Delta area.
Sunday (10/3): You'll be picked up at the apartment by Chilly Billy Howell, the iconoclastic proprietor of Delta Bohemian Tours, who will pick up where Tad Pierson left off and dig even deeper into the beautiful weirdness of the Delta before personally taking you back to Memphis to catch your flight!
