The Forgotten History of Country Music on the Avenue
January 07, 2022
This week on Echoes of Indiana Avenue, we’ll explore the forgotten history of country music on the Avenue. We’ll listen to music from some of Naptown’s Black pioneers of country music - including Lulu Jackson, in 1928, she cut one of the first country music records in Indianapolis; and fiddle player Jame Cole, who led a variety of washboard, and jug bands during the 1930s.
