Before there was jazz or blues or gospel, there was Black folk music, the foundation of American music today. Come enjoy songs from a time when you had to make music to hear it. Songs from your Granny’s country church down South (or the little church you pass by right here in Harlem); songs from the vegetable man every Thursday; songs that helped our ancestors endure prison and escape slavery; songs of joy. Enjoy, join in, sing and dance with us.
