The History of Blues in America is a one hour program led by music historian and acclaimed guitarist Joey Leone, along with two other musicians covering the history, influence and impact of American blues music through songs, stories and historical facts.  Over his long career, Joey has toured as a sideman guitar player for many high profile artists including Etta James, The Coasters, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Chaka Khan, and more.  

The program is primarily geared for adult audiences, but we've found it's also popular with teen and pre teens who are learning to play musical instruments.  The content is all-ages appropriate.
