Mississippi Blues Trail Markers
updated 3 months ago
“The Mississippi Blues Trail markers tell stories through words and images of bluesmen and women and how the places where they lived and the times in which they existed—and continue to exist—influenced their music. The sites run the gamut from city streets to cotton fields, train depots to cemeteries, and clubs to churches. We have a lot to share, and it's just down the Mississippi Blues Trail.”

Most entries in this list simply list the city in Mississippi where the marker is located. Markers placed outside the state of Mississippi will include the appropriate state name. In some cases, a marker is dedicated to a family which does not exist as an entity in the Discogs database; in such cases, family members are referenced instead. Some artists have multiple markers, which are noted. The city listed is often the birthplace of the artist, but not always. For the exact location of a marker, please refer to the msbluestrail.org web site.
Many more markers exist than are accounted for in this list, because they are not listed in the Discogs.com database as of this writing. Churches, clubs, non-recording artists, club owners, and others are commemorated; please see the msbluestrail.org web site for full details.
