Robert Gordon & Thomas Forrest Kelly

March 29, 2020

Muddy Waters was born in rural Mississippi and worked most of his childhood picking cotton as a sharecropper. But his love of music propelled him to become one of the emblematic artists of the blues. His music and playing style was recognized around the world and influenced and inspired countless other musicians. Tonight on Inquiry we welcome back writer, producer, and musical historian ROBERT GORDON. He will be talking about his book CAN’T BE SATISFIED: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MUDDY WATERS.

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with THOMAS FORREST KELLY, a professor of music at Harvard University. His new book is about the art of the scroll and why cultures continued to make scrolls after the book was created. His new book is THE ROLE OF THE SCROLL: AN ILLUSTRATED INTRODUCTION TO SCROLLS IN THE MIDDLE AGES.
