Greenwood has a special relationship with the blues – a music born of field hollers used in the days when cotton was picked by hand. The Blues Trail is a work in progress of the Mississippi Blues Commission. It will consist of more than 100 historical markers throughout the state noting significant places and faces in the story of America's music.
