The West Baton Rouge Museum presents the “Neal Family Blues,” an exhibition that pays tribute Naful Neal, the “Godfather of Baton Rouge Blues,” and his talented family, until Sunday, July 12. “

It’s a local topic,” said the museum collection curator Angelique Bergeron. “This music is something people can remember dancing to.” The blues emerged in the Southern United States at the turn of the century and numerous WBR residents played a part.
