DID YOU KNOW?
The blues are a historically African-American song form. They are a blend of ballads and field hollers. Hollers were the work songs of the slaves when they picked crops on the southern plantations. These rural roots make it difficult to document the exact origin of the blues, but it also makes sense that the music became so personal. Interviews with surviving musicians tell of them hearing blues sung throughout the South in the early 1900s.
At EHCC we provide a platform for cultural expression. In addition to the visual and performing arts, we offer educational programming and social events from cultures all around the world.
