One for all, and all for Blues
We love bringing great music to everyone.
The Garvin Gate Blues Festival, in conjunction with the Kentuckiana Blues Society will present the 4th annual Blues In The Schools Program on Saturday, October 12. This year’s Blues musician presenters will be Mark “Big Poppa” Stampley and Gino Simpson.
The program this year continues to build on past successes that we have learned from a variety of feedback from both teachers and students. First, we always try to convey a message that music is not difficult to learn and can be understood at any age or by anyone. We will relate Blues music and the influences it had on other music genres such as Rock & Roll, Punk Rock, Rap, and Hip Hop. We will illustrate the importance of the Harmonica and Guitar to blues music and expose the students to these instruments specifically through a live music presentation. And, the performers will interact with the students in writing a simple blues song and teaching a group of students and teachers how to play a harmonica they will be given.
