As one of America’s greatest musical treasures, the Blues is a roots music form that evolved out of African- American work songs, field hollers, spirituals and country string ballads more than a century ago. The Blues is the foundation of virtually every major American music form born in the 20th Century, including Jazz, Rhythm and Blues, Rock and Roll and Hip-Hop. Taught by a GRAMMY Museum historian, this workshop explores the history, cultural impact and legendary figures that contributed to this significant genre of music.
