All of the great spirituals, blues, jazz, pop, and rock of the first 100 years can't be contained in just one hour. Karlus Trapp returns to the Elsie Quirk Library to share part 2 of his delightful edutainment presentation, The Roots of Black Music in America, on Tuesday, February 20, 11am to noon. Did you know that many of the top stars of today were heavily influenced by the music pioneers of over 100 years ago? Do you know who the queen of blues was in the 1930s, or what rock &roll piano playing legend wrote three songs that Elvis recorded on his first record? Hear the songs and stories of artists including Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, The Drifters, Stevie Wonder, and Nat King Cole. Seating is limited at the library located at 100 W. Dearborn Street. First come, first served. Sponsored by the Friends of Elsie Quirk Library. For questions, call 941•861•1225.
