Topic: When DC was the Country Capital - Acoustic Blues, Folk and Bluegrass in the Capital
Washington, D.C., has given much to the musical world beyond its best-known exports: Duke Ellington and the punk and go-go scenes. Join musician, broadcaster, and historian Ken Avis as he explores the area’s lesser-known, remarkable, and fascinating musical avenues and why they could only have happened here in the DMV area. Film and recordings bring legendary musicians to life as Avis examines how social change, technological development, and business innovation shaped the sounds that emerged from D.C.- a political town with a serious music habit. Discover music, stories and facts...and a lot of surprises as you hear the stories of Music City DC!
Music City DC! will take place every Monday and Thursday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., starting May 17 through June 28. Please note: no workshop on May 31.
Please Note: Due to health and safety concerns and to avoid unnecessary disruptions, classes will close 10 minutes after their start time and new participants will not be admitted.
