Course Description

When exploring American popular music genres of the 20th Century, we find that nearly each one is influenced by the Blues.   What started as a simple African-American musical form with roots in African musical traditions, African-American work songs, and spirituals, soon became the foundation of Jazz and Rock music in America.   This special lecture will present fascinating details about the birth of the Blues.  How did the Blues become a social as well as musical mechanism for other types of music?  Listen in with OLLI as Mr. Joyce presents music from some of the founding artists of this unique and special musical style.   

This lecture will take place ONLINE and will be available to everyone remotely.  Only residents of Lake Park, may access it there.  No one from outside of this community may be on site.
