The first part of our trip will take us from Chicago, whose blues is part of the city’s cultural heritage, to Memphis, accompanied by Ladell McLin, a young bluesman.
Chicago has attracted a lot of musicians, such as Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy, and others.
Today, the city still offers bluesmen the opportunity to perform in concert.
After a stay in St. Louis, the junction of blues and rock, where Chuck Berry still performs, we will reach Memphis, the home of founders and establishers of blues.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
