‘LIVE’ In The Deep South

To celebrate our 25th anniversary let us take you to the very soul of American music and along some of the twistiest routes in the world! We’ll ride America’s most famous stretch of road – the Tail of the Dragon – so good we ride it twice! Along the way is some impressive scenery – the Great Smoky Mountains, Cumberland Falls State Park and the mighty Mississippi River and Delta.

 

In 15 days you will hear blues, country, jazz, bluegrass, R’n’B, rock and roll, rockabilly and all shades in between. This is a real trip down musical memory lane – or rather Highway 61 and The Natchez Trace Parkway! Experience American music history from the pioneer days to the present following Bob Dylan, BB King, Muddy Waters, Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton and many more. And all the music essentials are included in your tour along with some awesome museums.

 

In Nashville we’ll take you to the Country Music Hall of Fame and encounter our first legend at the Johnny Cash Museum! We’ll take a full day to explore Memphis’ musical heartbeat, visiting Graceland, Stax Museum, Sun Studios and of course Beale Street. In New Orleans we finish with two nights of post tour jazz and Cajun thrills.

 

We shall ride Blue Ridge Parkway, through the beautiful Smoky Mountains and the 11-mile Tail of The Dragon with 318 bends. And if you don’t get enough twisties here you can catch up on the Devil’s Triangle and the Cherohala Skyway!

 

‘Live’ in the Deep South, taking you through 6 US states, is both a riding delight and a musical extravaganza!

 

Total miles: c. 1800
