My husband went to the Performing Arts Series last night to hear Elvin Bishop and Charlie Musselwhite on guitar and harmonica and enjoyed it, but he’s an old white guy and a professional musician as well, and he commented that they played all blues, which has its origins in black culture of the past century and more.
