Open Now – See How Mississippi Shaped American Music 6 Strings at a Time

If all of history’s musicians formed a band, Mississippi bluesmen would play lead guitar. So where better to see a new traveling exhibit of 40 amazing instruments than the Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience in historic downtown Meridian? The exhibition’s very name – America at the Crossroads – nods to the legend of Delta bluesman Robert Johnson selling his soul at a Mississippi crossroads for otherworldly guitar mastery. The museum’s permanent exhibits tell more about Johnson and other Mississippi guitar-playing greats: Bo Diddley, Charley Pride, Jimmy Buffett, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Marty Stuart, Jimmie Rodgers, and, of course, Elvis.

Bring your soul to this Crossroads, and feed it the joy of music.
