New York Guitar Festival: A Celebration of the Music of Memphis Minnie
For the New York Guitar Festival's 20th anniversary, the Festival and WNYC's New Sounds combine forces once again, this time for a celebration of the music of Memphis Minnie. A supremely influential and pioneering guitarist, Minnie was one of the first blues artists to go electric in 1942, and is considered a crucial link connecting acoustic Delta blues with the electrified Chicago sound. Chuck Berry, Big Mama Thornton and Muddy Waters have acknowledged Minnie's influence. Bonnie Raitt called her "one of American musical history's most vibrant and pioneering artists."
