Rory Block Lit the House!

Amazingly, Rory Block recently came to perform at the school I work at. If you don’t know her, she is an authentic blues goddess, learning to play at the knee of Son House (father of the Delta Blues.) If you already know Rory, I’m happy to report that she is everything you’ve heard.

“Her playing is perfect, her singing otherworldly as she wrestles
with ghosts, shadows and legends.”
The New York Times

Yup. That about sums it up. You must, first chance you get, go hear her for yourself. Here’s a taste to get you out the door…

Her story, her playing, her singing are all amazing. I learned so much listening to her that night. Her performance reminded me what it’s really all about – spirit.
