A Brief History of the Blues: Part 1

The Blues - A Brief History

We thought we would start the new year off with a Brief History Of The Blues.

We tried to let folks know where the Blues came from and how it was transmitted throughout the world. Mind you; it is brief.

I've written the tightest show yet and still it covers a lot of territory.

We hope you enjoy it!
