RAMONA JUNE REED BLAIR

WITH BOB WILLS & THE TEXAS PLAYBOYS

IN MEMORIAM VIDEO

Western swing, which got its start in the early 1930s in Fort Worth, combined black, white, rural, and urban influences in an intoxicating musical gumbo, with a spongelike ability to absorb a myriad of musical styles and transcend multiple ethnic boundaries.

This groundbreaking film traces its origins, development, and legacy, utilizing original and contemporary voices.
