I Got the Blues, and I Can’t Be Satisfied
What is the blues? The blues is what a blues singer sings. The blues, the first truly American art form, is not monolithic, but instead is a widely diverse and vital art form. This presentation introduces eight basic types of blues songs and gives the audience a better understanding of the forms of songs that comprise the blues. The basic historical background of each song is discussed, and audience participation is encouraged.
