Chasin' Dem Blues: Untold Story of Paramount Records
This event has expired. This may be a recurring event, so please check the calendar in the future for updated occurrences.
This revival of a Rep premiere (previously titled Grafton City Blues) explores the inspiring story of Grafton, Wisconsin’s, Paramount Records. A recording label that, at the height of the jazz and blues age, became for a brief, bright few years, the leading label for recording artists of color in the Midwest—and broke down small-town racial barriers along the way. Artists such as Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter and Ma Rainey all recorded there. This exuberant musical celebration of some of the greatest jazz and blues music features four sensational quadruple threat performers guiding the journey through story and song.
