Blues In Schools

Many Central Iowa Blues Society members will remember Fruteland Jackson. Jackson came to Des Moines several years ago thanks to CIBS. The Marietta Times reports about his latest blues in schools project in Marietta Ohio. It is nice that Fruteland Jackson teaches the blues to kids in the schools. I used to do blues in schools back in the early 90s, and I enjoyed playing for the kids. They are a great audience and they really appreciate the music.

The photo is from Fruteland Jackson's website. Fruteland is holding the mike, and wearing the beret, while seated in white is the legendary blues scholar the late Alan Lomax.
