Course Description

Based on the success of the Million Dollar Quartet program, Taylor Hagood is back at the piano to sing and play to make this program both an entertaining and educational experience. The focus is the blues, with a look at the foundations of this uniquely American musical form from New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta, following such diverse artists as Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Sonny Boy Williamson, and B. B. King.
