Music of the American South

Music of the American South explores the origins, history, and evolving present of all forms of music, from classical to vernacular musics, including gospel, jazz, blues, country, old-time, roots, and Americana. With a concentration on work that is accessible to a wide readership while being of the highest scholarly standards, the series seeks bold, innovative works emphasizing issues of race, class, gender, and power in music-making. The art, culture, and business of music is told in a variety of forms including monographs, biographies, memoirs, readers, and reference works from scholars, artists, journalists, and others.
