dsc_0821The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) partners with the Kentucky Blues Society again to take the Blues in Schools program to the Butler County Middle and High Schools on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. The group is composed of keyboard player and vocalist, Kenny Lee, harmonica player, Lee Hammer and guitarist, Jim Morris, also known as former professional wrestler “Hillbilly Jim.”  The group will conduct two Blues workshops, one each at the middle school and high school in Butler County. Each student participant in the workshops will receive their own harmonica provided courtesy of Hohner Harmonica and SKyPAC.

“The Kentucky Blues Society has been teaching Kentucky’s rich Blues history through the Blues in Schools since 2005, as well as involving students in Blues performance and musical techniques. The first Blues guitar recording ever made was by a Kentuckian. We look forward to taking this program to Butler County schools and working with the students there,” says Kentucky Blues member, Kenny Lee.
