Have a listen to Eric Clapton playing along with B.B. King. Don’t look at the audience shown on the youtube clip. Close your eyes and image what the people listening to that music would look like.
OK. Hands up all those who thought oldies, mostly women, over 64 years old? No-one? Thought not. Well, today that was just what happened. I know the listeners were over 64 years old because I was the youngest there at the jazz session. It was run by a volunteer ‘tutor’ at U3A and the jazz featured in the first session was mainly music of the black slaves of America. B.B. King was an added bonus. So for the princely sum of $2 we were entertained with great music for 90 minutes. Go, you grannies!
