"Blues is the roots, everything else is the fruits." So proclaimed Willie Dixon, blues composer, famed recording-session maestro, bass man, and an early bridge between the blues and rock 'n' roll.
This thought is brought to life in the untold story of Paramount Records, Chasin' Dem Blues. This roof-raising show is a foot-stomping, multi-media musical celebration, which thrills audiences with storytellers' accounts of how a small Midwest town changed the landscape of American music, and ushered in the sound of the early 20th century, a sound that still reverberates today.
