Chicago Office of Tourism: Chicago Blues Audio Tour

CHICAGO, USA

In the early part of the 20th century, hundreds of thousands of African Americans moved to the urban centers of the North. In Chicago, the cultural tradition they brought with them mixed in the city's south-side clubs and cabarets to give birth to electric blues. This program studies the birth of the blues through the lives of its performers, clubs, and record labels. Narrated by Buddy Guy, featuring music from Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones, Koko Taylor, Magic Sam, Tampa Red, Ada Brown, and Papa Charlie Jackson.
