The African Roots of American Music
Blues preservationist and one-man-band Curtis Blues brings the acoustic music of the Mississippi Delta straight into your school! Playing drums, harmonica, vintage guitars (including a one-stringed diddley bow), cymbals, and home-made instruments, this blues Artist of the Year demonstrates the history of this classic American music and the connections it has to music students listen to today. The content of each interactive performance is carefully matched with the grade levels attending.
