About This Show
Dr. Edgar is joined by two Dr. William Ferris, Senior Associate Director, Center for the Study of the American South, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and Dr. Bill Malone, Professor Emeritus at Tulane University to discuss the roots of American music and its influence on music world wide.
Was the beginning of truly American music the advent of the blues, country or a mixture of both? The discussion is a preview of the debate to take place in the next installment of ETV’s Take on the South: What influence has the South had on all American music? That program will air May 25th at 7:00 pm on ETV stations.
