  1. CANCELED: Gaye Adegbalola - Songs from the Griot

    April 6, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Join us for a special presentation: Gaye Adegbalola - Songs from the Griot: Using Traditional Blues to Tell Contemporary Stories. A griot is a member of a class of traveling poets, musicians and storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history in parts of West Africa. Gaye sees herself as a present day griot who maintains black history using the blues as her art form for storytelling. The blues is about that which gives you trouble. So she presents topical blues for topical times! Gaye Todd Adegbalola, a Blues Music Award winner, is best known musically as a founding member of Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women (1984 – 2009). The group recorded exclusively with Alligator Records. Additionally, she has 6 recordings on her own label, Hot Toddy Music (Todd is her family name). Admission is free for museum members, $5 for non-members.
