Dr. Greg KimbellApril 1st   12pm – 1pm "Virginia Roots Music" Two landmark recording sessions in Richmond left Virginia a rich legacy of traditional music in the 1920s and 30s. The Okeh Record Company, a subsidiary of Columbia, came to Virginia’s capital in October 1929 and recorded blues, jazz, country, and gospel music played by musicians from every part of the state. Seven years later the famed folklorist John Lomax visited the Virginia State Penitentiary under the auspices of the Library of Congress. He captured a wide array of African American folk songs, including work tunes, folk ballads, spirituals, and blues—a treasury of American traditional music. Dr. Gregg Kimball of the Library of Virginia will recount the story of these recording sessions and the artists who left this rich musical legacy.  The multimedia experience will include vintage images and rare 78-rpm recordings, and live music.
