Swampette Tour

April 04, 2015, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

 

Tours are led by “Swampette” Judy Hood, the wife of bass player David Hood, one of the famous Swampers — a group of session musicians who crafted the Muscle Shoals Sound. Traveling on a trolley bus, each tour is slightly different. But each tour will include visits to sites like the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, FAME Studios and 3614 Jackson Highway, which was the home to Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. Cost is $35 per person. Seating is limited and tours fill quickly. Call the Florence/Lauderdale Tourism office at 256-740-4141 for reservations. Address: Starts at Florence/Lauderdale Visitor Center, 200 Jim Spain Drive, Florence, AL 35630 Phone: 256-740-4141
