Overview

This book documents the wide variety of musical styles of the American South, including church music, country music, dance music, traditional blues, electric blues, work songs, western swing, bluegrass, ballads, and story songs." "These black-and-white photographs - which cover a one-hundred-year span from the 1850s to the 1950s - were selected from a range of photo archives, including the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution, as well as prominent private collections. The wide selection includes images from such well-known Farm Security Administration photographers as Russell Lee and Ben Shahn. Each of the seventy-five photographs is accompanied by an extensive caption that relays a relevant (and often amusing) anecdote, or otherwise gives historical context to the photo.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With this collaboration, the Carlins continue their significant contributions to the study of folk music in the United States. The Smithsonian Institution's collection is richer through Richard's production of more than a dozen recordings for Folkways Records; Bob is known as a folklorist, performer, and documentarian of North Carolina folk music. Featured are 75 black-and-white photographs, dating from the 1850s to the beginning of World War II, by Ben Shahn, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, and other lesser-known photographers. These images are taken from a variety of sources, most notably the Library of Congress's archives of the Farm Security Administration. These stirring images--many of which have never been reproduced until now--reveal the importance of music in the everyday lives of Southerners. Each photograph comes with a descriptive notation to focus the reader's attention on its distinguishing musical features. Recommended for academic and public library collections.--Kathleen Sparkman, Baylor Univ., Waco, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
