All Set for a Black History Month Concert!
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
12:00 to 13:00
<p>Today in the Auditorium the Vanier College Department of Music does its part to honor Black History Month with a special presentation and concert. Vanier teacher Glen Ethier will give a brief presentation on how the earliest 1940s and 1950s electrified blues scene developed out of the delta blues traditions of the 1920s-1940s. From the &ldquo;jump blues&rdquo; of performers like Charles Brown and LaVern Baker to the solid bass-riff stylings of Willie Dixon and Howlin&rsquo; Wolf to the masculine swagger songs of Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley, the presentation will be illustrated amply by live concert performances of the songs. As part of the department&rsquo;s student success series of events, three excellent combos of music students&mdash;under the special guidance of performance teachers&mdash;have come together to learn the original tunes and present them here. It&rsquo;s the best of all possible worlds: socially relevant, educational, entertaining and absolutely free. Don&rsquo;t miss it!</p>
