Tennessee State Museum traveling exhibit arrives at Historic Granville
The exhibition gives a snapshot of African-American Tennesseans’ significant contribution to American music, including spirituals, blues, ragtime, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, rock and roll and soul music. In turn, the music has influenced and enriched music around the world. From the early blues legends of W.C. Handy and Bessie Smith to the soul hits of STAX Records in Memphis, visitors can learn about and view YouTube videos of various performers featured in the exhibit on their smartphones or tablets through the use of QR-coded links.
