7th Annual Cal-Sag Graveyard Blues Tour

This from reader Mick Zaklan:

"The 7th Annual Cal-Sag Graveyard Blues Tour is a bike tour of noted blues graves.  It benefits a good cause - the Cal-Sag bike trail.  As I recall, we went to three cemeteries and saw a dozen or so graves.  A host with a harmonica rack and guitar played a tune associated with each artist.  I think Big Walter, Willie Dixon, Big Bill Broonzy, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann, Magic Sam, Muddy Waters and Dinah Washington were among the graves I recall seeing.  The tour finishes up in old Blue Island, an interesting little area with a good Cajun restaurant, a couple of decent Mexican joints, a boutique brewery, and maybe a farmers market still going on.  I can't say the tour guide is a great harmonica player or the information anything you might not already know, but it's a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon and good exercise."
