Sat. Oct. 3rd 5:00-7:00pm – A 78rpm Listening Party at Folk Arts!

I’m very excited about this event I’ll be having at the shop. The great Lou Curtiss will be in the house to share his immense knowledge of American music. And I’ll breaking out the absolute best 78rpm records in my possession. Many killer records will be heard. Come hang out or join this discussion.

Discover the strange and fascinating origins of American music through 78rpm records! Join us for a listening party including many marvelous, rare records and an informal discussion about the importance of these recordings. The development of genres like Blues, Old-time Appalachian music, Jazz, Western Swing, Gospel, Country, R&B and Rockabilly will be covered, with an emphasis on the relationships between the genres, and how they helped to shape later styles like Soul and Rock’n’Roll. This fun and informal event includes great conversation and free beer!
