*Postponed* Song of the South: Assimilation and Secession in Today’s County and Bluegrass Music

September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

This event has been postponed. We will update this site when it has been rescheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

In collaboration with Wayne Community College, Goldsboro

Featuring Jocelyn Neal, Professor of Music

The musical heritage and modern musical practices of the American South are a treasure trove for exploring how Southern culture interfaces with mainstream American popular culture.We will look at present-day bluegrass and country to consider how those styles balance assimilation with the constant pressure to separate themselves as distinct genres and traditions. Along the way we will hear great music and meet unique and engaging personalities.

This event is free and open to the public. 

Location to be determined.
