Delve into the stories behind Amplified with its curator Joy L. Bivins and legendary blues harmonica player and singer Billy Branch. Enjoy live music and take in photographs that document a community of musicians who defined a distinctive sound. Discover how the Great Migration shaped the blues, how the music captured the challenges of being a newcomer in an urban environment, and how musicians such as Branch have carried on that legacy and continue to define the Chicago blues sound.
