Mississippis Blue Trail - Mississippi to Florida Marker at Bradfordville Blues Club in Tallahassee

Mississippi to Florida - Tallahassee

"North Florida’s urban clubs and rural roadhouses, including clubs that have operated at this historic Bradfordville location, have played an important role in the history of the Gulf Coast “chitlin circuit” for touring African American blues, jazz, and R&B musicians. Mississippi-born artists B. B. King, Bo Diddley, John Lee Hooker, and many more have performed and recorded in Florida, while some Floridians, including bluesman Benny Latimore, recorded at studios in Mississippi as well."

Congratz out to the BBC and EVERYONE that has EVER played or listened there, and all of the Florida blues people, past and present, that did the right things to make this recognition happen now, to last forever.
