This course is designed to introduce students to the roots, influence, and influences of the bluegrass music genre. The material and course discussions will challenge students to identify pioneering artists, trend-setting regions and cities, and explore what it means for a sound to serve as a representation of an area, in this case, Appalachia. Bluegrass music allows for an intimate discussion concerning race, class, gender and labor movements in Appalachia.
