American Strings Webcast: An Evening with Jimmie Vaughan at 5 PM
Join host Bob Santelli for a conversation and live remote performance with Texas blues great Jimmie Vaughan: an American Strings event in support of Oregon State University students, presented in partnership with the College of Liberal Arts, OSU Alumni Association and OSU Foundation.
A founding member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds and the older brother of Texas blues legend Stevie Ray, Jimmie Vaughan brought renewed attention to Texas blues in the 1980s, ultimately leading to Austin becoming a major American blues center. A multi-GRAMMY Award winner, Vaughan’s “Baby, Please Come Home” was a 2020 GRAMMY nominee in the Best Traditional Blues Album category. He also won a Blues Music Award for Best Male Blues Artist this year.
Hosted by Bob Santelli, Oregon State University’s director of popular music and performing arts, the American Strings series offers a unique opportunity to learn about a variety of genres from across the American music tradition.
