A Festival of Music, Dance, Workshops & Lectures all honoring and celebrating the Blues!
“Signify” is a historic term associated with blues music: In signifyin’, speakers spontaneously compose rhythmic and rhyming phrases with heavy use of innuendo and doubletalk. This coded language allows the speaker to express bold ideas, opinions, beliefs, or feelings without repercussions.
You can learn about “signifyin” and a whole host of other blues-related topics during our interactive talks happening throughout the event weekend.
Do you want to hear inspired blues from performers who really know where it came from? Does experiencing interactive artist workshops all in a comfortable space appeal to you?
Want to really feel the music? Take a dance class from some of the best blues dancers in the world or catch an impromptu jam session in our lounge!
