Taught by Professor Anthony Seeger | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
How does music bring like-minded people together? In this lecture, turn to three traditions of voluntary, public music in America: brass bands, powwows, and folk music festivals. Learn how each tradition—despite their unique sounds and histories—offers fellowship, reinforces bonds, and helps foster a sense of communal history.
