Continuing Education offering CEU credits for Blues Conference

By September 21, 2017

Delta State University’s Division of Continuing Education will be offering educator Continuing Education Credits (CEU) for attendees of the International Conference on the Blues. This year’s conference will be held at the GRAMMY Museum Mississippi at Delta State on Oct. 1-3.

The fourth annual International Conference on the Blues is shaping up to be the best yet. This year’s lineup features GRAMMY winner Aaron Neville and has a two-part theme: Mississippi Delta native John Lee Hooker’s centennial birthday celebration in conjunction with the museum, and an exploration of ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax’s collection of Mississippi Delta blues and gospel recordings.

The unique symposium brings together blues scholars, historians and fans from all over the United States in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, a place known as the epicenter of blues music and history.

Educators who wish to receive CEU credit must register for the conference: CEU credits will be assessed a separate fee, payable at completion of the conference.
