Old-Time Music Makers of New York State


Old-Time Music Makers of New York State


Northeast - general


"Old-Time Music Makers of New York State is the first book published on this rich legacy of traditional Anglo-American music and dance. It traces the development of old-time music beginning with its movement into New York State from New England in the early nineteenth century and to its combination with commercial country music in the twentieth century."

The website link takes you to a preview of the book, though not the full text of this 262-page volume. Of particular interest might be Chapter 2, which looks at the hillbilly image showcased by Floyd Woodhull and others.
