Discover the lives and work of some of America's greatest roots-inspired musicians through their biographies, videos, recordings and other materials.
Whether from the communal life of a village, a child’s upbringing, the energy of a big city or the power of a social movement, great music often takes the creative artist on a personal journey to new surroundings and performance styles. Viewed through the lens of individual artists’ biographies, videos, recordings and research materials, this lecture class will open the windows into the lives and work of some of America’s greatest roots-inspired musicians. Join Greenwich Village singer-songwriter and Florida Atlantic University’s “Music Americana” Distinguished Faculty Member, Rod McDonald, in this experience.
