Music Note of Note: Published in 1914 and still played by bands all over the country, W.C. Handy allegedly wrote “Saint Louis Blues” inspired by a chance meeting with a woman on the streets here, upset at her husband’s absence. Learn more about it and the history of the Blues at our National Blues Museum!
