February 27 – “Blues, a Truly American Music Form”.
Larry Edmonds talks about his lifelong passion “The Blues”.
The music called “The Blues” is an American music form deriving from the “call and response” singing communication between and among the African-American slaves.
Larry Edmonds is with the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication College of Public Program at Arizona State University.
Arizona State University faculty associate, L.M. Larry Edmonds, will provide a dynamic lecture on blues music at noon on February 27, 2003 at the Burton Barr Public Library (Main Phoenix branch).
