When thinking of Natchez, music may be the last thing that comes to mind. Natchez is actually a part of the Gold Record Road that travels through the Americana Music Triangle, the birthplace of American music. The Gold Record Road loops through Natchez twice to give you just enough time to explore the history and live music scene and of course, our neighboring influential towns.
From the tribal music of the Natchez Indians to the slave musicians who entertained at formal and informal gatherings to the burning of the Rhythm Night Club, Natchez’s music history runs as deep as the Mississippi River.
Be sure to pick up a tearoff map when you are at the Natchez Visitor Center so you can explore all five Mississippi Blues Trail Markers in our area. We wouldn’t want you to leave off our neighbors in Ferriday, Louisiana at the Delta Music Museum and Frogmore Plantation.
