Description:
"Before Rock 'n' Roll" is a teaching concert customized to different experience/grade levels and suitable for families. In this engaging combination of history, stories and music, Blues musician and historian Scott Ainslie leads his audience back in time to the rhythms and music that influenced the rise of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Ainslie introduces audiences to work and slave songs, spirituals, Delta and Ragtime Blues using guitars and African-derived American instruments – the fretless gourd banjo and one-stringed cigar box guitar. Inviting audiences to join in call-and-response singing and back beat clapping, Ainslie presents a tour-de-force of American roots music while teaching and demonstrating specific African retentions that continue to have a vibrant place in contemporary American music and culture today.
