2014 June Picnic

The National Blues Museum:  A Home for the Blues

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
11:30 am - 1:00 pm

SPEAKER:  Dave Beardsley, co-founder of the National Blues Museum

Blues music is the foundation of American music, influencing everything from rock and roll and country to jazz and classical music, all while still remaining a distinct and viable form of musical expression. You can hear it on the radio and in clubs, bars, and concert venues all over the world, and in 2015, you can immerse yourself in the blues at the National Blues Museum in Downtown St. Louis. The National Blues Museum will explore the Blues and celebrate the genre as the foundation of all modern American music. The facility will educate guests in an entertaining environment that includes high impact technology driven experiences, a 100-seat theater, artifact-driven exhibits and robust public programming. Join the APA-St. Louis Metro Section at the annual June Picnic as they welcome Dave Beardsley, co-founder of the National Blues Museum. Dave will be discussing the museum’s importance as a cultural institution, its diverse offering of programs, and the unique site that will provide a home for the blues.

This will be a great program and with a free lunch, why would you want to miss it?  Also, the results of the 2014-2015 St. Louis Metro Section Board of Directors Election will be announced at the picnic.  Come attend and find out the members of your new Board!!
