The blues is a musical genre spawned by spirituals, work songs and field hollers from the South. But it’s also the forefather of so many more contemporary American roots music forms, from rock & roll to jazz to R&B.

And last Saturday night, the Saratoga acoustic blues duo Low ‘N Lonesome and their friends traced the history of the blues from the ’20s to the dawn of rock & roll in a sprawling, across-the-years concert at the Sand Lake Center for the Arts in Averill Park.
