More About Blues Music
Blues music is one of the most influential genres in America’s past as it’s had a big impact on jazz, folk, country, pop, rock, and even rap. Having been around in some variety for centuries now, Blues has been a genre that is upfront with feelings and emotions, especially those outside your own control such as sadness and solitude.
Blues music channels those feelings into a beautiful, low medley. The Blues genre as a whole connects artists from all different demographics and styles because it is as much a feeling as it is a type of music. Explore the impact that this genre has had on American culture in this amazing collection of exhibits at the National Blues Museum.
