Up Jumped the Blues

May 27, 2024 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Music

With Steve Ghitelman

The Blues runs through American music like a mighty river. But, like every big river, it has many streams and tributaries that both are fed by the river and in turn flow back into it "downstream. " In "up Jumped the Blues," we aim to explore the blues of country artists and their big-city cousins. At the same time, however, we will also listen to blues-inflected country, gospel, R&B, folk and even rock music that reflects this great source of American popular music.
