Blues music is a key part of Louisville’s history, with its roots dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. Several legendary blues artists called the River City home, including Sylvest Weaver, who recorded the first blues guitar record in 1923. Other local blues legends include Bill Gaither, Sarah Martin, Helen Humes and Edmonia Henderson.

Sonny Sitgraves (drums), James Watkins (bass), Billy Bird (vocals and harmonica) and Pen Bogert (guitar) have been playing together for more than 10 years. Bogert, a former Filson staff member, will provide a brief introduction to the history of blues, with music to be enjoyed throughout the rest of the evening. Materials relating to blues history will also be on display.

Reservations are required.
