Signature Series Inspired by Muddy and Monroe: Featuring the Del McCoury Band and Catherine Russell
Muddy Waters and Bill Monroe are two American music titans who each helped create and define a blues-based genre: bluegrass, in the case of Bill Monroe, and Chicago blues, in the case of Muddy Waters.
Special guests the Del McCoury Band, a renowned representation of the best in contemporary bluegrass, and Catherine Russell, a vocalist who brings vibrant new life to the Chicago blues sound, will perform with students and faculty to re-envision the music of these two titans.
This program is produced by Matt Glaser and Rob Rose.
