Blues at the Logan Center

Chicago’s South Side was once the burgeoning mecca of the Chicago Blues. While the immortal influence of Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Willie Dixon thrive around the world, the presence of this powerful African American folk music has all but dissipated on the South Side. The Logan Center has taken giant strides to bring this cultural legacy to the forefront of South Side culture by featuring the Chicago Blues in 3 significant events: 1) BluesFest; 2) School Music Programs; and 3) a Monthly Blues series in Café Logan.


The Logan Center’s newest music series, Second Monday Blues features Chicago’s world-class musicians and emerging blues stars. A live interview precedes each concert, moderated by the series’ three-time, Grammy-nominated curator and host, Billy Branch. Relax with a glass of wine or cup of tea in Café Logan’s intimate setting while getting up close and personal with local musicians and delving deeper into Chicago blues.
