The Marcus Shelby Quintet: Blues and the Pursuit of Freedom

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/the_marcus_shelby_quintet_blues_and_the_pursuit_of_freedom

One of the most authentically American art forms is blues music. Widely considered the foundation of rock’n’roll, swing, hip hop, country, and everything in between, blues itself took inspiration from blues hollers, field cries, work songs, spirituals, and freedom songs, which were central to the pursuit of freedom from slavery. Join The Marcus Shelby Quintet for a stunning concert celebrating the evolution of American social movements through music, from the founding era to today.
