THE BLUES TRAIL: FROM MISSISSIPPI TO MEMPHIS
The bright lights of Beale Street and the promise of musical stardom have lured blues musicians from nearby Mississippi since the early 1900s. Early Memphis blues luminaries who migrated from Mississippi include Gus Cannon, Furry Lewis, Jim Jackson, and Memphis Minnie. In the post-World War II era many native Mississippians became blues, soul, and rock ’n’ roll recording stars in Memphis, including Rufus Thomas, Junior Parker, B. B. King and Elvis Presley.

Comments:
The sign is part of the Mississippi Blues Track and is located near the Memphis Rock ’n’ Soul Museum, as can be seen in a photo taken that day by the same photographer Click for a larger image

The track is a Mississippi Blues Commission project established in 2006 with the goal of placing signs at landmarks in places that have influenced the growth and development of the blues in and around the state of Mississippi.
