The History of Blues in America

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Learn about and enjoy the history, influence and impact of American blues music through live performance, stories, and historical facts.

"The History of Blues in America" is a one-hour program led by music historian and acclaimed guitarist Joey Leone, along with two guest musicians, covering the history, influence, and impact of American blues music through songs, stories, and historical facts. 

About Joey Leone
Over his long career, New York native Joey Leone has toured as a sideman guitar player for many high profile artists including Etta James, The Coasters, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Chaka Khan, and many more.  In addition to being a musician, he has produced commercials for companies including Clairol, USA Today, Nickelodeon, and Pontiac.
The program is primarily geared for adult audiences, but Leone says he's found it's also popular with teens and pre-teens who are learning to play musical instruments.  

Funding support for this free event has been provided by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
