Arizona State University, the ASU Libraries and the ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts School of Music are hosting a program titled “America’s Music: A Film History of our Popular Music from Blues to Bluegrass to Broadway.” The six program series will feature documentary film screenings and discussions, led by project scholar Dr. Richard Mook, of twentieth-century American popular music. Designed for a general audience, “America’s Music,” will enlighten participants about uniquely American musical genres including blues and gospel, Broadway musicals, jazz, bluegrass and country, rock n’ roll, mambo and hip hop.
October 16 Program: Blues & Gospel Music
The birth of the blues from its African roots to its eventual prominence in places like Memphis, Chicago, New York and beyond will be explored.
“America’s Music” is a project by the Tribeca Film Institute in Collaboration with the American Library Association, Tribeca Flashpoint, and the Society for American Music. “America’s Music” has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor. Arizona State University is one of eighty-one institutions, public libraries and non-profits selected to participate in this national initiative.
