Summary

Introducing American Folk Music examines folk and closely related grassroots music, such as gospel, western swing, and folk-rock.

The book covers the diverse strains of American folk music--Latin, Native American, African, French-Canadian and Cajun--and offers a chronology of the development of these musics in the United States. Each new copy of the text comes packaged with a free audio CD containing recordings to accompany all the listening guides.


New to This Edition

New Chapter on Hispanic-American traditions: Coverage from the first edition has been completely rewritten to more thoroughly address this important and increasingly influential music.
Audio CD: The book comes with a compact disc containing 27 musical examples of American folk and ethnic music drawn from the extensive Smithonian Folkways catalogue.
Unique Coverage: There is no other book that focuses on folk and ethnic music in the United States.
