Teaching the Historical Roots of Blues
Scott Ainslie stepped onto the stage and swept back his long, graying hair. He slung his 1931 National, a guitar he bought 20 years ago in a pawn shop in Georgia, over his arm.
And then he began to play the blues.
Teaching the historical roots of blues music, especially to the younger generation, is an essential part of Ainslie’s work.
