WDET 101.9FM says
An audio-visual storytelling experience of Detroit Blues cultures featuring photography by Amy Sacka Photography and audio by Laura Herberg.

In the summer a stage sits on a vacant lot off the corner of I-94 and I-75. Sunday afternoons, a band brings the stage to life while folks set up their grills, kick back, and get down on the dance floor. It all began as John’s Carpet House, a speakeasy for old friends to enjoy the blues. Now it’s morphed into a weekly reunion in Detroit where everyone is family.

Over the summer, WDET producer Laura Herberg and Detroit-based photographer Amy Sacka have collaborated on telling the story of this grassroots music jam. Experience the voices and stories from its attendees as they reflect on Detroit’s southern roots and blues history at this photography and audio gallery exhibit.

This Free Public event will include a photography exhibit along with audio stories, performances by the John’s Carpet House band and soul food appetizers.

On Display: Until Dec. 1
Baltimore Gallery is open every week on Tuesdays through Sundays, 11 p.m. to 7 p.m. Closed on Thanksgiving.

Framed by WDET is supported by WDET members, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, National Endowment for the Arts and our series sponsor United Healthcare.
