Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World Documentary Screening
There is a long-standing history of indigenous musicians in the United States; in Idaho, one of the most famous is Coeur d’Alene tribe member and jazz singer Mildred Bailey. Growing up in a musically-inclined family on the Coeur d’Alene Reservation, Bailey made history as the first woman to sing in a big band and to host her own radio show. To learn more about Bailey’s story, as well as stories of indigenous musicians like Link Wray, Redbone, and Buffy Sainte-Marie, join the Idaho State Museum on Thursday, November 18th for a screening of Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World.
Enjoy general admission seating, a cash bar, and concessions for purchase as you watch the stories of Native musicians who changed the history of music in the Idaho Room under the glow of the historic stained-glass dome at the Idaho State Museum.
Admissions to the Museum, including the new exhibition, “Trailblazing Women of Idaho,” is included with your ticket purchase. Mildred Bailey is recognized in the “Inspired” section of the exhibition.
Tickets are non-transferable. Idaho State Historical Society event tickets are not eligible for refunds. We are following current CDC guidance related to masking and physical distancing.
