Origins of the Blues

Jan 25, 2018

Join Active Minds as we look at the early days of the blues, from its roots in African American oral tradition to its rise as a mainstream American musical style. We’ll explore the role of classic blues and prominent blues musicians in the early 20th century, examine the musical characteristics that make it different, and discuss how the blues has influenced other popular music genres.

Mario Sauceda Art Exhibit at La Cour Art Bistro & Jazz Bar. Sauceda's exhibit will be up all of January. Born into a multi-racial family in 1960, and raised in Southwest Denver, Mario Sauceda’s creative force was manifested at an early age. Even as young as three or four, he exhibited a determination and an ability to concentrate that established a precedent for his later explorations into both art and architecture. His mother was an art teacher in Denver Public Schools, and his father was a civil rights attorney.

Please join Denver Arts & Venues for the 15th Annual Five Points Jazz Festival. 2017 brings you more stages, more bands and more fun than ever before. This free, family-friendly event takes place annually on the third Saturday in May and celebrates the history of Denver’s Five Points neighborhood.

Once known as the Harlem of the Rockies, Five Points was home to several jazz clubs which played host to many of jazz music’s legends such as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and many more.
