Blues music is an American art form. Slaves from Africa worked the plantation fields in the deep south and developed a means of communication by “hollering” using a form of singing. Through discussion and music, follow the progression from the fields, to front porches, to juke joints and the recording of “Race Records.” Explore the movement of free blacks north to Chicago and the “plugging in” of instruments. Head “across the pond” to see the influence of the blues music in Britain in the 1960s. See who’s keeping the blues alive, from elder statesmen to the new faces of the blues.
Help Raise The Roof of the Blues Hall of Fame. For many years during the Blues Music Awards celebrations, there are inductions into the Blues Hall of Fame. Now we want to build a home for the inductees. You can help!
