Jack White Makes Large Donation To National Blues Museum

(hennemusic) Jack White has made a large donation to help support The National Blues Museum in St. Louis. The museum reports White's six-figure contribution will fund the "Mix It Up" creative Blues experience within the state-of-the-art facility, which is scheduled to open later this year.

The museum bills "Mix It Up" as the culminating experience of every guest's visit to the new museum. Traveling through the Museum's chronological galleries, visitors will be able to sample a variety of musical styles and influences within the complete history of the Blues. Ultimately, visitors will conclude their experience by entering "Mix It Up" where using intuitive editing tools, they can blend their selections together and share their new compositions with others.

"Perhaps as well as anyone, Jack White understands that the Blues is truly the foundation of all American music and remains relevant today," says the museum's Chairman Of The Board Rob Endicott. "Through Jack's vision and generosity, we hope to inspire the next generation of Blues artists, historians and fans." Read more here.
