Pandemic Blues! An evening of music at 78 RPM

February 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm|

Special Guest: Alex Tank from  78s for the People

Presented by the TADL Sight & Sound Dept. Hosted by Aaron Olson

Join us as we explore the uplifting power of music from the mid 1920’s through the 1940’s. 

This virtual program on music will be highlighting the sounds of Blues and Jazz following the 1918 pandemic era, exploring artists like “Ma” Rainey, Bessie Smith and W. C. Handy. This inspiration for the style came from an African American musical practice of singing away one’s sorrows to move on and up away from them. Music is the universal language that holds the power to lift us up when we are feeling lowdown.

This program was made possible by the support of the Charles Saunders Jazz Donation
