Jake Blount presented by Folk All Y'all + Crosstown Arts
Jake Blounts music is rooted in care and confrontation. He is a scholar of Black American music, speaking ardently about the African roots of the banjo and the subtle, yet profound ways African Americans have shaped and defined the amorphous categories of roots music and Americana. His 2020 album Spider Tales (named one of the years best albums by NPR and The New Yorker, earned a perfect 5-star review from The Guardian) highlighted the Black and Indigenous histories of popular American folk tunes, as well as revived songs unjustly forgotten in the whitewashing of the canon. Each song Blount plays is chosen for a reason  because it highlights important elements about the stories we tell ourselves of our shared history and our endlessly complicated present moment. The more we learn about where weve been, the better equipped we are to face the future  a future imagined by connecting Black tradition with the environmental crisis, centering the questions, What would Black music sound like after climate change renders most of the world uninhabitable? What gods would this community praise, and what stories would they tell? The answers come through the bedrock of Blounts voice, channeling the ragged triumph of a people still standing after centuries of continuous confrontations with Death.
