Tricksters, Tall Tales, and Blues Notes
The Greater Jefferson County area includes some of the most poignant and expansive repositories of African American folklore and folk music in Arkansas and the Delta region. Few places can boast of the folk traditions documented, interpreted, or developed by luminaries with area roots or connections such as Dr. Julius Lester, Dr. Richard Dorson, Drs. John and Alan Lomax, Hudie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter, “Big” Bill Broonzy, Jerry Jones, and J. Mayo Williams.

The Arts and Science Center will present a night of lore, music, and interpretation which highlights the powerful folklore and music sounds emanating from African American culture with Greater Jefferson County ties.

Jimmy Cunningham, Executive Director of the Delta Rhythm and Blues Bayous Alliance, writes and directs this program featuring regional actors and musicians. The event will take place in ASC’s Bellamy Theatre.
