Program of the American Corner for 21 February


BOLL WEEVIL FOLK BLUES GANG concert & discussion

February 21, Thursday, 6 pm

Venue: Debreceni Művelődési Központ, Pódiumterem


Started around year 2000, the Boll Weevil Folk Blues Gang is intent on displaying the diversity of early American black folk music with a repertoire including ballads, rags, gospels and spirituals besides blues songs. Our music is led by acoustic dobro guitar and vocal (Dávid Ongjerth), escorted by double bass (Gergő Szabó), violin (Milán Bajovics) and harmonica (Mátyás Sain). One of the aims of the group is to show that blues – and black folk music in general – is not only the music of sorrow and depression, but just as well the music of joy and happiness.

The concert is free of charge!
