Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Great American Songbook -

- a study course, starting 09:30  Tuesday October 1, at the Wylam Institute.
Five weekly 2-hour sessions, costing £15 for the course.
In this second series we confront the abundance of  twentieth century. popular music, their ancestry, development, maturity – some 300,000 songs were written!
We'll examine the vibrant, mixed ethnic seedbed of musical life in that early & mid-century Manhattan.
We'll explore the songs of the ‘second line’ songwriters who enriched the great ‘book’ over some six decades.  We may not know all their names but we bought records, listened to, sang and danced to their songs.
- to enrol, contact rguariento@btinternet.com        or    29 Falcon Tce,  Wylam  NE41 8EE
