University of North Carolina Press

Conventional narratives about blues revival activity in the U.S. in the 1960s treat it as a northern phenomenon. This chapter addresses lesser known efforts in the Deep South to enhance the cultural status of the blues, and how they were hampered by Jim Crow segregation. It also compares revival scenes in New Orleans, Memphis and Houston, focusing on the distinctive institutional arrangements of bohemia in each city.

Keywords:   blues, blues Revival, New Orleans, Houston, Memphis, segregation
