Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, it always snows in Dav­en­port. We don’t whether it is the influ­ence of the Big River or High­way 61, but every time we go to Dav­en­port High­way 80 is a hockey rink with white pow­der on top. What­ever their impact in win­ter, the Mis­sis­sippi and High­way 61 are the foun­da­tion of the long and mag­i­cal musi­cal his­tory of Dav­en­port. Accord­ing to Wikipedia, “Dav­en­port was founded in 1836 by Antoine LeClaire and named after his friend Colonel George Dav­en­port after a singing of a peace treaty end­ing the Black Hawk War.” Singing a peace treaty. What a beau­ti­ful notion. No won­der we like Dav­en­port so much.
