Chicago Blues Experience—Where the blues lives

Chicago is the birthplace of modern blues, a pure American art form that has had a profound influence on nearly every style of music that followed. This music could have been forged only in Chicago: when the Great Migration brought Delta blues to the city, it was amplified to reflect the energy and struggle of an urban audience. The Chicago Blues Experience celebrates the pioneering artists as well as the generations of musicians who have been influenced by the blues and continue to carry on its traditions.
