Join us as we explore the BLUES with Chicago Blues Legend JOHN PRIMER. As we celebrate Black History Month, you’ll get an up front and personal musical biography about John's blues life, his views on the history of the blues and how he sees today’s blues music.
John will tell stories about his life growing up in 1945 in MS on sharecropper land, his family life, and his migration to Chicago in 1963. Listen to John’s storied history of learning the blues at the famous Theresa's Lounge from all the blues legends, joining the bands of Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, and Magic Slim and then becoming his own band leader for his Real Deal Blues Band.
Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the Blues with a living legend!
