Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The Rosenbaums have made a splendid contribution to our understanding of both southern culture and history.”—Georgia Historical Quarterly

“This book shows its editor in the roles of interviewer, interpreter of socialscientific data, annotator, discographer, and artist; he plays them all with great success. From the beginning of his artistic career, Rosenbaum has specialized in American folklife scenes. These paintings, depicting the lives and aspirations of the informants, give the collection an expressiveness we hardly meet in folksong books.”—Ethnomusicology

“An outstanding documentation of some strong and persistent traditions, prepared with understanding and deep respect for folk music and its performers.”—Appalachian Journal

"With bands such as Mumford & Sons making old-timey music cool again, discover the roots of American music with Folk Visions & Voices. Art Rosenbaum’s awesome collection of songs from North Georgia features lyrics and music from such titles as 'I Used to Do Some Frolickin' and 'He Could Fiddle His Way Out of Jail.'"—Angela Matano, Campus Circle
