The Music Maker Blues Revue at Centre College’s Norton Center
With the popular resurgence of Americana, blues and traditional music, The Music Maker Blues Revue artists serve as musical masters. This performance is being held in conjunction with the exhibition, Our Living Past, a collection of tintype photographs from Tim Duffy, founder of Music Maker Relief Foundation, in the Norton Center Grand Foyer January through March 2017. Both projects began with the goal of helping a small group of tenured, southern musicians still performing the musical traditions of the 19th and early 20th century America. They’ve busked on the sidewalks of High Point, NC, received standing ovations at Carnegie Hall, travelled from Argentina to Australia, Europe to Guatemala, and across the U.S. The Revue pleases all types of fans, from the “boogiers to the bookworms.” February 24, Weisiger Theatre. Sponsored by Stuart Powell Ford Lincoln Mazda with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
