Spring Season Family Matinees:
The Blues
HERBST THEATRE $15 GENERAL ADMISSION ADULTS
$10 ADULTS WITH CHILDREN
$5 CHILDREN AND SENIORS
Both fun and educational, Family Matinees provide a window into the exciting
world of live jazz. Each one-hour matinee features live performance, audience
participation, Q&A and amazing music. Although designed for elementary school
students, our Family Matinees are open to music fans of all ages and may be
enjoyed individually or as a series. This spring, the Marcus Shelby
Trio hosts our Matinee series, showcasing one of America’s great musical
treasures, the Blues.
Shelby and his
musical guests, including Matt Clark on piano and Howard Wiley on drums and reeds,
will trace the Blues as a musical form of story-telling, weaving live performance
and oral history in a fun and interactive experience that highlights this
important tradition as the “DNA of American music.”

Matinee 1: The Blues In the Beginning
SUN,
MAR 13, 11AM • HERBST THEATRE
In Matinee 1, Shelby will demonstrate the
genesis of the Blues through various historical time periods and share with the
audience how the music has had impact on the growth and development of
contemporary music. From field and blues-hollers to work songs and spirituals,
dirges and second line marches to barrelhouse and early swing blues, the audience
will witness the transformative elements of early American music.

Matinee 2: The Blues Telling Stories
SAT,
APR 2, 11AM • HERBST THEATRE
Blues music has long been a means of expressing stories of hardship,
heartbreak, passion and
politics, as well as passing along oral history. In Matinee 2, the focus will
emphasize the African American oral tradition and its relationship to the blues,
highlighting the role of the vocalist.

Matinee 3: The Blues Hearing & Feeling It

MAY 21, 11AM • HERBST THEATRE
In Matinee 3, Shelby and his guests will showcase the
cross-cultural influences of the Caribbean (or so-called “Latin-tinge”) in New
Orleans, leading up to the birth of be-bop, rhythm and blues, rock n’ roll and
beyond. This matinee helps the audience hone their “blues” listening skills
through an interactive, how-things-work approach.
