Description of Mojo Triangle Travel Guide:

Mojo Triangle Travel Guide

The Mojo Triangle is a cultural land area located within a triangular connection between New Orleans, Nashville and Memphis. The birthplace of country, blues, jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll, the Mojo Triangle has presented the world with an astonishing array of original music.

Mojo Triangle Travel Guide presents a road map for tourists to explore the historic triangle for the purpose of understanding America’s impressive contributions to music. The book is divided into seven chapters:

Chapter 1 New Orleans

Chapter 2 Natchez

Chapter 3 Natchez Trace

Chapter 4 Mississippi Delta

Chapter 5 Memphis

Chapter 6 Muscle Shoals

Chapter 7 Nashville

Each chapter begins with a brief explanation for the destination area’s contribution to music and brief bios of the recording artists from each area, followed by practical information about where travelers should go to find music venues, restaurants, places to spend the night, and historical points of interest. Major features of the book are rare photographs, interviews with many of the musicians who played important roles in the creation of America’s music, and feature articles on human and cultural landmarks within the Mojo Triangle.

The triangular concept of defining American music was originated by author James L. Dickerson in the early 2000s after decades of writing about the music created in the South. In 2005 he published a book, Mojo Triangle, that was named the best non-fiction work in the South for that year by the Independent Publishers Association and presented with an IPPY Award. The book was updated and reprinted in 2014.
