St. Louis Opens a Museum Dedicated To History Of Blues

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Here and Now

http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2016/04/14/national-blues-museum-st-louis

.

.

This month the National Blues Museum opened in downtown St. Louis. Unlike other blues museums, which are dedicated to a regional style or a single musician, this new museum is dedicated to the history of the blues and how it influenced music and culture across the country and the world. Here & Nows Jeremy Hobson talks with Dion Brown, founding executive director, and Rob Endicott, chair of the board of directors of the National Blues Museum.

.

Interview Highlights: Dion Brown and Rob Endicott

.

What does this museum tell us about blues that has not been brought up by other museums?

.

Where did the idea come from to start a National Blues Museum?

.

On claims that the museum should be in Chicago or Memphis

.

How did blues get started in this country?

.

What makes B.B. King stand out?

.

Endicott: Boy, its the feeling there. Its the restraint he had, I mean, you can hear it in his voice and in his guitar playing. Its the selection of the notes and the way that he would bend them and just not playing, over playing. To me, thats quintessential B.B. King right there.

.

Who else stands out in the history of the blues?

.

Brown: I had the honor of working with Mr. King at the B.B. King Museum for the last five years. Actually I was hired to come here from the B.B. King Museum. Its his passion, I mean, all musicians have the passion, but Mr. King was just something else with the passion. He could hit one note on Lucille and you knew who he was and what he was about. You know, thats the thing about the blues, and going and living in Mississippi, Mr. Kings hometown, you meet so many great blues musicians who didnt make it, but they still had that passion, theyre still singers. The obvious is, W.C. Handy, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, theres so many, but theres also so many. We just had an event up here, on March 31st, and theres a travelling exhibit we have called Blues at Home, and its a painting of 31 Mississippi blues musicians and we had nine of them up here, from Bobby Rush to Denise Lasalle, Jimbo Mathus, Jesse Robinson. The list goes on, and theyre great entertainers. At the end of the night, Rob will tell you, they put on a jam session that the people who were in attendanceĀ  it was just mind-blowing. That is what the blues is: its a great feeling and they just love to be around their fans.

.

Does Howlin Wolf get his own section in the museum, or does he share it with other people?

.

What is different about setting up a museum in 2016, as opposed to setting one up in the 90s or the 80s?

.

What do you want children to take away from this museum?

.
