This interactive assembly invites students to draw inferences and conclusions from the lyrics of great American Blues songs. By illustrating how the great songwriters made their writing compelling, students at each grade level learn how to make their own writing richer in sensory detail and figurative language. This is all accomplished as multi-instrumentalist Curtis Blues keeps the audience riveted by bringing fascinating instruments into the audience for a close look at roots music history.
