In honor of African-American History Month, author and music historian Richie Unterberger presents "Blues Greats." This program features filmed performances from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s like Howlin' Wolf, Big Mama Thornton, Koko Taylor, John Lee Hooker, Otis Rush, B.B. King and others. Unterberger discusses the songs and artists during the event, and takes questions from the audience about blues history.


Unterberger is the author of numerous rock history books, including volumes on the Beatles, the Who, the Velvet Underground, Bob Marley and 1960s folk-rock. He’s taught courses on rock and soul music history in colleges throughout the Bay Area for ten years. His next book, to be published by Taschen in 2022, is San Francisco: Portrait of a City.
