ST. LOUIS, MO – St. Louis has an essential role in the development of Blues music in the world. For decades, the city was the center for ragtime musicians such as Scott Joplin, Louis Chauvin, and Tom Turpin until later, their music continued to evolve into modern Blues and Jazz.

The development of Blues music in this city is still ongoing. It is shown by the large number of fans of this music genre that almost every month, it is easy to find live Blues performances all around the city.

The musicians' journey in bringing this music can be seen in St. Louis' National Blues Museum located in downtown St. Louis. This museum provides a lot of information about the history of the Blues as the primary foundation that started the emergence of various modern American music.
