A Day in the Life: R&B Music & Conversation

September 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Mt. Pleasant Library – Adult Area 1

R&B

The Rhode Island Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society will provide information about their organization and will offer a musical tribute to the heritage, legacy and historical connections of R&B music in the evolution of American popular music.  R&B music in Rhode Island came out of the local Black culture and had a direct impact on the local culture.  Some areas to be presented will include how R&B evolved, popular songs of the R&B era (1940s to 1975), and what it was like ‘making it’ as a R&B musician of color in Rhode Island during this historic period.

Please RSVP below.
