Über diesen Titel:
With nearly double the number of entries devoted to music in the original Encyclopedia, this volume includes 30 thematic essays, covering topics such as ragtime, zydeco, folk music festivals, minstrelsy, rockabilly, white and black gospel traditions, and southern rock. And it features 174 topical and biographical entries, focusing on artists and musical outlets. From Mahalia Jackson to R.E.M., from Doc Watson to OutKast, this volume considers a diverse array of topics, drawing on the best historical and contemporary scholarship on southern music. It is a book for all southerners and for all serious music lovers, wherever they live.
"This is an encyclopedia so well written you can read entries aloud to a friend or to an audience. Additionally, you can read from page one and find yourself in a drama that demonstrates overwhelmingly that the South is the heart and soul of American music. This is a must for anyone the least bit interested in the South, music, both, or either. This book has given me hours of pleasure--reading about jazz, rock, folk, blues, and spiritual music. Bill C. Malone, Charles Reagan Wilson, and all the folks at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture and UNC Press deserve great credit for all the work they are doing in letting us southerners know what we're about--and our contributions to the world, contributions that should make us very proud."--Clyde Edgerton
