According to Blues musician Scott Ainslie, “there is more to music than music.”
Ainslie is also a writer and a historian of the Blues and, as a Phi Beta Kappa graduate
of Washington and Lee University, he understands the educational mission of a liberal
arts college. Ainslie’s work as a musician and a scholar reflects both his reverence
and affection for African and American culture and music.
