Drawing upon interviews and archival primary source materials, this book presents new insights into the musical practices and traditions of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century rural northern New England; a context that includes traditional ballads and hymns and, surprisingly, popular songs and commercial dance music. Author Jennifer Post lets the voices of ordinary people, the participants, tell us about their music and cultural history. Hardcover, 314 pages, includes CD.
