It’s been said that American Music is mostly a mash-up of all the cultures that have contributed to it. As successive waves of people came here they brought their music with them and, because music has no boundaries, cultures interacted, and new forms were created and new stories were told. How does this work? How does a Scottish reel become an American hoe-down? How did Scandinavian dance music become a component of what we call a Northwest fiddle style? How did the German button accordian become so central to French music in Louisiana? How did an African American “cakewalk" by a Jewish composer become popular on the Reservation? Is English the only language to have shaped American song? Come on along as Chico Schwall and his American Roots team explore the braided strands of American music through story and song.
