“Blues 101: A History of Blues Music in America”

May 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Free
Fairfield Public Library, 1080 OLD POST RD
Fairfield, CT 06824


Fairfield Public Library presents “Blues 101” with Ramblin’ Dan Stevens, an entertaining, educational multi-media and performance program about the history of blues music in America, from its origins in the African American tradition of the Deep South to the present. The roots of rock and roll, jazz and even hip hop can be traced back to the blues. Of special interest are the pieces Dan will perform on his homemade, primitive guitars just like the ones used by early bluesmen and played with a “bottleneck” slide.

Ramblin’ Dan Stevens is a veteran touring bluesman and teacher who has entertained audiences throughout the US, Germany, UK, Canada and Virgin Islands. Dan was a finalist in the International Blues Challenge on Beale St. in Memphis, Tennessee, and is a protege of the legendary folk/blues icon, Dave Van Ronk.

Please register for this in-person event.
