Speakeasy Blues: Surviving Prohibition and the Great Depression
January 8 @ 7:00 pm
Monday, January 8 at 7pm at Hampton History Museum | Museum members Free, Non-members $5
Prohibition sought to correct the morals of the nation, but plenty of people continued with their hard-living ways. The wild flapper became a symbol of the times and even the Great Depression couldn’t dampen American’s enthusiasm for a clever bit of escapist wordplay and double entendre. In this hour-long concert, Dr. Gregg Kimball, singer Sheryl Warner, and harmonica player Rick Manson will perform songs that lightened the nation’s mood in the speakeasies, barrelhouses, and clubs of America.
“Speakeasy Blues” is held in conjunction with the special exhibit: “Teetotalers and Moonshiners, and Hampton’s Prohibition Story.” Read more about it: https://hampton.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=5253.
