Scott Ainslie 7:00 p.m. St. Ann’s Performing Arts Building (musical performance) 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. This event is free and open to the public.
