History Through Music Series - The Blues

6 p.m., Thursday August 29
This edition of the  Oklahoma Historical Society’s “History through Music” program will examine the development and appreciation of the Blues music genre from its roots in nineteenth century slavery to its popularity in the twentieth century. Through the humanities discipline of history, Dr. Harold Aldridge and Dorothy Ellis, aka “Miss Blues,” will lecture and perform on the roots of different Blues styles. This will include regional differences and the
migration of these styles into Oklahoma. During the program scholars will also discuss how the unique settlement of the Sooner state mixed different cultures and music, creating its own distinctive sounds and musicians. During the presentation both musicians will explain the roles that secular and gospel music had in these communities.
