This weekend our live blues pick isn’t for just one show on one night, it’s for a two day event. Part One on Friday evening, Part Two on Saturday evening. It’s not a performance we’re picking, though there will be a performance each night. It’s a symposium that looks to be very interesting, well planned with good speakers and interesting topics, and a lot of fun, too. It’s a two day symposium on Race, Gender and the Blues.
This weekend Dominican University in the near west suburb of River Forest is presenting a two day program on the blues. Blues and the Spirit III, A Symposium on Race, Gender and The Blues includes speakers, a multimedia presentation, a Blues Summit on the state and future of blues, panels, presentations awards and two outings to blues clubs.
