History of Blues in America: Kids’ Edition

Watch video promo: https://vimeo.com/473412430

Please register online for this Zoom program. Suitable for children age 6 and older.

Young people will find the History of the Blues in America show to be fun and informative, as Joey Leone connects the history and style of early blues musicians and their unique word imagery, to the vernacular of hip-hop, top 40, and spoken word artists of today. The content of these different styles of music was and is still a way for people to connect with their audience while having fun. The Q&A afterwards is always energetic and full of positive energy. Kids leave with a better understanding of the origins of where their favorite music comes from, and often results in a new found interest to learn to play a musical instrument.
