Ainslie is a traditional acoustic Blues singer, guitarist, historian and songwriter
with personal roots in the Civil Rights era and a great affection for cross-cultural
exchange. He is a powerful musician, a fine singer, and a masterful storyteller.
A musician all his life, Ainslie took up guitar at age 15 after hearing Virginia
Bluesman John Jackson play a couple of songs in the middle of one of Mike Seeger’s
concerts in Alexandria in 1967.
This event is free and open to the public.
