Country Blues Workshop with Sidewalk Bob

Saturday, July 28, 2018 -
2:00pm to 4:00pm

Matthews, Community Room

Join "Sidewalk Bob" Harrison to learn about the history of blues and hear pre and post-war country blues in the North Mississippi style. This interactive journey of music and stories of the music of the African American past follows a uniquely Southern trail to revisit field hollers, work songs, chants and Southern Baptist gospel along the Mississippi Delta. This program goes thru the history of the blues beginning in Africa and takes us up to the 1960s with an emphasis on pre-war (WW II) acoustic blues.
