Legendary blues man B.B. King will be buried on May 30th on the grounds of a museum dedicated to his life in Indianola, a small Mississippi Delta town where his career began.

A funeral procession will take King’s body from the airport in Memphis, Tennessee next Wednesday to Handy Park in Memphis, where King first achieved widespread fame, before continuing down U.S. Route 61 — often dubbed “The Blues Highway” — to his hometown of Indianola.

The funeral service will be held at the nearby Bell Grove Missionary Baptist Church, followed by a private burial on the grounds of the museum that evening.
