About Apollo Presents: The Blues and Its People

Join us for The Blues and Its People, an electrifying evening-length concert featuring critically acclaimed composer and trumpeter Russell Gunn and his Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra that brings to life poet and author Amiri Baraka’s groundbreaking work, Blues People: Negro Music in White America. Special guests include Weedie Braimah, Davell Crawford, Miles Griffith, Craig Harris, Stefon Harris, Jazzmeia Horn, Oliver Lake, Jessica Care Moore, and Leon Timbo. This exciting one-night-only exploration of jazz, gospel, and blues, commissioned by the Apollo, traverses Baraka’s text through song and readings curated by Fredara Hadley, Ph.D, ethnomusicologist at The Julliard School of Music.
