Country Blues with Ralph Rosen @BecketAthenaeum

June 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Learn about the history Country Blues from its beginnings to today.

Through audio & video recordings, hear how its melodies, song forms, and rhythms came from “field hollers” often used by enslaved Afro-Americans. Discover how acoustic Texas and Mississippi Delta Country Blues gave rise to the electrified City Blues known around the world.

Ralph Rosen, a drummer, had a lengthy jazz career with notable greats while growing and managing Berklee School of Music’s Stan Getz Library Media Center for 31 years. He continues to compose, arrange, and record original music locally.

RSVP appreciated.
