|The National Blues Museum will feature plenty of exhibits and public programming.|
"This program will be a great way for people who don't like blues to hear Bob speak and learn about how important blues was to the creation of other music genres," says Massey, who says some audience members might find themselves walking out as converted blues fans. Check out a video of Santelli presenting a blues workshop to music students at the White House in the video below.
Last but not least in the series, National Blues Museum welcomes legendary songwriter and soul musician David Porter, who along with Isaac Hayes, has composed more than 200 songs for Stax Records recording artists and more in the 1960s. Do Sam and Dave's "Soul Man" and "Hold On, I'm Comin'" sound familiar to you? Get a chance to meet the man behind the music in an onstage Q&A session. The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 29, in the Central Library auditorium.
