Episode Info:

On November’s episode of Blues Dance World, Katie introduces us to Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the godmother of Rock and Roll and someone who’s influence heavily shaped modern music. Then, the regular Blues Dance World crew takes a bit of a backseat this month as we bring on a panel of special guests, Curtis Ellis, Elizabeth Kilrain, Cierra Ruffin, and Kenneth Shipp, to talk about blackness in the blues dance world, a conversation that our community’s been having with itself for a while now. Our discussion ranges from personal experiences to things that the community is doing well to ways that our panelists think we could improve. We also talk about some of the events we’ve been to recently and have a special visit from a very spooky individual at the end of the podcast! Finally, we’ll discuss the Blues events that are coming up. Blues Dance World Podcast focuses on topics of blues dance culture. These podcasts will be posted once a month, so keep an eye out for them. If you like what you’re hearing, please let us and the world know! Rate and review us on our iTunes page! Main Host: Clyde Wright, Co-hosts: Katie Alexa and Aaron Brown, Producer: Andy Lee, Special Guests: Curtis Ellis, Elizabeth Kilrain, Cierra Ruffin, Kenneth Shipp, Photos: Ben Hejkal, Melanie Bert, Devon Rowland, Mashable.com
