Memphis is known internationally as "The Home of the Blues." And on your fabulous Heritage Tour, you'll view a street that continues to impact the city's history as it did during its most glorious period in the early part of the 20th century with lots of music and thriving Black businesses.
Beale street was the social gathering magnet and meeting place for blues legends like the "Father of the Blues," W.C. Handy who began publishing his songs as early as 1912. And the Memphis jug bands, prominent during the late 1920s and early 1930s, represent another of the transitional phases in Memphis blues music
So as you witness world famous Beale Street on the Heritage Tour, just remember --- it is the place where many of the blues innovators perfected their talents.

King. All of these legends and many more represent the great heritage of Memphis music and Beale Street which you'll relive when you take the one and only Heritage Tour.
