ok So I need help. My father's 80th bday is in august. we don't have to celebrate right then so Sept date is ok- or basically we are flexible.
We had kept thinking we would take him to a blues festival (5 adults, 4 kids) for a short weekend. He could sit, listen to music, soak up the sounds etc. he is active but can't stand forever...

He would be driving from little rock, AR (Maumelle really). I had read up on Greenville, ms, Cleveland, MS and Clarksdale, MS having blues related events/museums etc.

Here are my concerns:
1) am I overlooking another close city we cold drive to (I am in Birmingham so I need it on my side of AR/MS)
2) I don't know that I see enough to fill a day of wondering in the towns (for a arrive friday leave Sunday)
3) wonder where we will stay (vbro? need hotel with pool to entertain 8-10yo at night? IDK)
4)tThe blues festivals are either too big for my dad ( we don't need a concert) or too small. ( I say this from the pictures I see of say the sunflower music festival. The pictures they have make it seem like 5 people came- that can't be the case) - anyway, I am going off pictures online so please suggest one.
5) I don't want a concert/music at 8 pm for him. If even we can hear music while out to eat each night is fine- so long as it is authentic good sounds and descent food.

Any itinerary suggestions would be sooo helpful!! PS - doesn't have to be blues. he loves country etc.
