Virtual: Walking Blues: An American cultural history told through song and stories 

Musician Barrett Anderson presents a 90 minute program consisting of a historical narrative of southern African-American culture in the 1920s and 30s, and the great migration up the Mississippi River, from the Mississippi delta to Chicago and Detroit, and the music and culture that evolved as it was carried northward, from the fields of the south to the urban centers of the north. This story/journey will be narrated through the specific musicians directly involved in each scene - Charlie Patton, Son House, Skip James, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and more, and will consist of performances of each musician's songs and style, and stories of the individual artists fitting into the overarching narrative of this great migration northward, also touching on the implications/impact of one of the constant themes throughout all blues music - travel.
