Summer Library Program - Delta Blues!

Maie Smith (center) – Tour Manager for the Mississippi Blues Museum in Clarksdale, MS presented a program on the Delta Blues to teens in the “Libraries Rock” Summer Library Program at the Winston County Library this past Monday. She began with the “Father of the Blues”, W. C. Handy, and ended with B. B. King. “Every genre of modern music in America started with the Blues,” said Smith. “Jazz, Rock and Roll, Rap – all of these have roots in the Blues of the Mississippi Delta.”
