From "Odum De", the plantive voice of Africa to "Let The Good Times Roll," the joyous shout of African Americans, "It Ain't Nothin' But The Blues" is a celebration of the spirit of humanity as it travels from its humble beginnings through the pain of slavery to the dawn of a new day. This show is a celebration of life, a paeon of praise to a people who have suffered much and triumphed greatly.
It tells the story of the blues from its African roots to the modern day, using 50 songs and 12 performers to string together 400 years of musical history.
Performances on June 25th and July 3rd had to be cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.
