BLUES IN SCHOOLS

Blues is generally regarded as the cradle of modern pop and rock music. Born from the Working Songs of the African-American slaves in the cotton fields of Mississippi, and considered as the "Devil's" party music of the Chicago blues clubs; this musical style formed the basis of the soul, funk, disco and rock & roll music. The Blues was the inspiration of many pop and rock musicians from the past like Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, James Brown, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, ... but also contemporary stars like Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Eric Clapton, The White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitz, ...

The "Blues in Schools" project is an educational musical program where Guy Verlinde gives young people an overview of the different styles (Delta Blues, Chicago Blues, ...), the most influential musicians (Muddy Waters, BB King, ...), the most important instruments (guitar, harmonica, ...) and highlights the socio-cultural background with stories and anecdotes. Each story is illustrated by live played musical examples.
