A Red Perspective on the Blues

July 6 in Toronto:

quote:
For more than a century, the Blues has profoundly influenced every form of popular music, from Jazz to Rock to Soul to Hip-Hop. In an incisive multi-media presentation, Ian Angus discusses how African-Americans created the Blues in response to oppression and terrorism in the southern United States, how it migrated from the rural south to northern ghettos, and how the music has evolved as the Black community has changed.
Looks interesting!
