Blues music and integration have been long intertwined in Austin, according to Roger Gatchet, a doctoral student and blues enthusiast who is hooked on oral history. Gatchet interviewed east Austin musicians as part of an oral history project. Matthew Robinson, Donald “Duck” Jennings and Henry “Bluesboy” Hubbard played in east Austin in the 1950s and 1960s, an era Gatchet has described as “one of the liveliest blues scenes in the Lone Star state.”
