Three Famous Music Streets in three of America’s Greatest Music Cities
Yet another great value Music Themed Tour from Travelling Time* This time we will visit three of the best known Streets in the USA!
- Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico is nicknamed the “Big Easy” and known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine.
- Beale Street in the heart of Memphis – famous for the influential strains of blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll that originated there. Elvis Presley, B.B. King and Johnny Cash recorded albums at the legendary Sun Studio, and Presley’s Graceland mansion is a popular attraction. Other music landmarks include the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, Blues Hall of Fame and Stax Museum of American Soul Music.
- Broadway – in Music City USA – Nashville Tennessee! Originally named Broad Street, musicians started performing in bars near the river in the 1930s and so a thriving music scene developed on Lower Broadway – the section of Broadway that runs from 1st Avenue to 5th Avenue. The official Nashville CVB defines a honky tank as “an establishment that contains at least one rockin’ stage, cold beverages, and a party that lasts all day, every day. Live music plays in most bars and restaurants along Lower Broadway from as early as 10 a.m. to 3 a.m. which is how the street came to be known as “Honky Tonk Highway”.
