​Jews and Blues

Danny Marks
 

Jewish people have been involved in the creative business of making music for decades, including a strong presence in the Golden Era when cultures intermingled to create and market Rhythm & Blues. In this fascinating session, musician and broadcaster Danny Marks will share his goldmine of information about the Jews in the world of Blues, and their contribution to this ubiquitous and much-loved genre of popular music.
