Henry Ford and Mark Cuban can’t be wrong
DFWSEM is thrilled to be hosting State of Search in Deep Ellum this November. When folks think of Deep Ellum, they usually have music in mind. And with good reason. The blues wasn’t born there, but it certainly spent some time in the neighborhood. Legendary Texas blues musician Blind Lemon Jefferson lived in Deep Ellum, where he played with Lead Belly and met T-Bone Walker. Bessie Smith performed there. Texas Bill Day as well. There’s even a song, Deep Ellum Blues, that’s been covered by everyone from Les Paul to the Grateful Dead.
But don’t let the music fool you, even though the area’s current resurgence has led to clubs, bars, and performance venues reopening at a stunning rate — technology and Deep Ellum are old buddies.
