Canton’s got the Blues
If you’re a music lover, you’ll find that Canton is a great place to be. This town is so steeped in blues history that you can feel it all the way to your bones. Elmore James once lived in Canton, where he worked in a radio repair shop. Experts say this experience may have led to his development of a unique, electric style. Two locations on the Mississippi Blues Trail are here in Canton as well. The first one, Hickory Street, also known as “The Hollow,” was the heart of social life and entertainment for the African American community of central Mississippi through the 1970s. The second one is Club Desire which did its best to keep the blues elegant and sophisticated. The club had strict dress codes and behavior rules so there was no funny business allowed here; it was all about the music. Club Desire was the blues nightclub to play at from the 1940s to the 1960s. James Brown, B.B. King, Joes Turner, and the Platters all frequented this kickin’ joint. But Club Desire wasn’t just a place to sing the blues; it was also an important meeting place for civil rights workers. Visiting these places you can almost hear the a sad song pounding out of an old steel guitar. Oh wait, maybe that’s just the latest show getting started.
