On a Blues Note

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2016

Come join us as we celebrate another year of preserving Chicago’s rich history and culture on film. Kick off the holidays with music, drink, tasty food and of course some twentieth century cinema at Savage Smyth, Chicago’s newest swanky but sweet spot to party. Our theme this year is Chicago’s blues history!

Come meet and listen to:

Sam Lay – Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Blues musician extraordinaire
John Anderson – Film Director of SAM LAY IN BLUESLAND
Dick Shurman- Music journalist, historian, and Alligator Records producer
Corky Siegel - musician, composer, and a blues birther

and our very own…

Alison Cuddy – Associate Artistic Director, the Chicago Humanities Festival

Come see unique footage that captures the clubs, musicians and good times of the 60s and 70s, including the Checkerboard, The Peppermint Lounge, Theresa’s, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Albert King and more. Help CFA collect, preserve and exhibit our extraordinary, historic and often unique films that reflect our twentieth century lives.
