Ignite Phoenix #12 - Discovering Blues Recordings as Historical and Cultural Literature

- Michael Broyles

I want to relay my experience of discovering that blues recordings from 1920-1950 contain deep, passionate oral poetry that provides insight into our cultural past and explorations into human nature. My goal is to inspire others to encounter blues music as complex insights into US culture and history.

Bio:

I am a writer, researcher, world traveler, vinyl record collector, and musician. I am most interested in writing about early twentieth century African American religious and musical traditions and am pursuing a graduate degree to achieve that end.
