Description

Blues to Rock: Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page Discover Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters: Academia and pop culture will collide and Rush Rhees will be hip hopping when Eastman School music theorist David Headlam examines the British discovery of the roots of rock 'n' roll in African American music. He will discuss how the British rock scene reinterpreted country blues, jump blues, and rhythm and blues. One of the most fascinating stories in the history of music and culture is how this little known American music became the basis of a worldwide rock phenomenon in the 1960s. Mr. Headlam will compare the original versions of songs with their rock reworking using recorded music and live guitars - this is an event guaranteed to keep the audience awake!
