String Stories: The Roots & Fruits of the Blues

From the West African griot tradition, to the African American a capella spiritual tradition and work songs, String Stories highlights the history of the Blues and the evolution of its accompanied instruments such as the guitar and banjo. Through this multi-media presentation featuring an orchestra comprised of vocalists and instrumentalists, students will experience the story of the Blues, that magical vehicle that gave voice to the voiceless, traveled the country, and then took on the world.

This performance is most appropriate for grades 3 – 12.
