Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" told of a band of medieval pilgrims making their way to the shrine of St. Thomas a Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. Over the centuries not just poetry but reams of wonderful music were written to honor the saint. The Canterbury pilgrimages are all but ended, but people still travel long distances to the graves of persons invested with mythic power. Some say that ELVIS is the new King of American Pilgrimage! Join Ellen Kushner as she examines the evidence and plays music from the Middle Ages to Memphis!
