Getting the Blues at U City Public Library

On Thursday, June 23, U City Library's auditorium was packed with summer readers of all ages to hear the gorgeous sounds of the Marquise Knox Band, an event coordinated with the assistance of National Blues Museum.   If you missed it, take a look at the clip below:


Zora Neale Hurston's work in collecting folk materials from Florida and the Caribbean was crucially important to our knowledge of blues today.  Take a look at: Blues Music from the Florida Folklife Collection - you can request a free CD or music download!

And this month we've got plenty of Blues reading material on display by the reference desk.  Stop by and browse.
