The Grammy Report
The Grammy Museum(R) event in Cleveland, Mississippi, was off the charts fabulous. Many have asked me how a little town like Cleveland could be the recipient of the only other Grammy Museum(R) in the country and one reason is Delta State University and their Delta Music Institute which provides unmatched musical instruction. The area is also known as the birthplace of the Delta Blues. The museum is state-of-the-art and gorgeous; the Beatles exhibit, provided in part by our friend, Chuck Gunderson (Some Fun Tonight!) was perfection.

Steps of "The Commissary" of Dockery Farms, Mississippi
A group was assembled and we were treated like royalty; receiving a private tour of Dockery Farms, (google it...it's amazing) which is considered the Birthplace of The Blues. I was able to get a picture on the remaining steps of the "Commissary" where Charley Patton and other fathers of the blues performed. One visitor in our group shared with us that her father had been baptized on the farm. When the farm was inhabited (2,000+ folks lived and worked on the farm), they would perform baptisms. While the farm was located alongside the Sunflower River, it was not used for baptisms due to infestation of snakes and alligators, so the mule trough was used for the ceremonies.

Grammy Museum(R) - Mississippi
Due to the brilliant organization of John Lennon Series Author and Symposium Chair Jude Southerland Kessler, the event was spectacular for all visitors and the speakers/
exhibitors. I am humbled to be in the company of such outstanding authors, artists and human beings. It's a real gift that I can call each of them friends: Jude and Rande Kessler, Ivor Davis, Freda and Rach Kelly, Ken and Carol Orth, Doyle and Yvette Jeter, Anthony, Sharon and Ella Robustelli, Kit O'Toole, Candy Leonard, Bruce Spizer, Cameron, Andrea and Dwayne Hicks and so many more. Until we meet again -- CHEERS!
