Rainin’ In My Heart: Back to the Blues

Blues is hugely popular all over the world; a diverse and multi-leveled art form that can express every human emotion through a kind of folk-art existential poetry that comes from deep within the human spirit. Learn how the blues came from West African rhythms, was transformed by the pain of slavery, and moved North after the Civil War. Much that was the Blues stayed in the Deep South, maturing and developing along with other forms of music. Blues has influenced every genre of music; jazz, rock & roll, gospel, even classical! Journey with us back to the blues in Baton Rouge as we visit with older Blues men who started it all, then meet their sons and grandsons who are carrying on the Blues tradition. From Raful Neal and the Neal family to Kenny Acosta and the House Rockers, it is Baton Rouge Blues at its finest.
