Omtale: I Hear America Singing
For courses in American Music, Musical History, and American Popular Culture. This book introduces the history and influence of American music within the broader context of American culture. The central focus is to forge connections between the world of contemporary pop music (with which most students are intensely involved) and the historical roots of this music (which most know very little about). A framework is provided for exposing the links in a chain of influence that encompasses the entire scope of our nation's musical heritage-from traditional folk ballads and blues, to contemporary rock and rap.
