A Feelin’ Called the Blues

Teaching Artist: Charlie Pfeffer & Sandy Weltman

Join Charlie on the steel and acoustic guitars and Sandy on his harmonica as they trace the history of one of America’s oldest and most original art forms — the blues. From its roots in slavery to the present day, students learn how the blues shaped much of today’s music and examine the blues’ place in both St. Louis and African American History. A harmonica jam with selected audience members accentuates this dynamic program.
