American roots and ethnic music is a unique blend of Anglo-European, Native America and West African influences. Simple chants, rhythms, sacred songs, and ballads have given birth to gospel, blues, folk, and old-time country music styles. Over time other immigrant groups’ music integrated into the process as well. The role that South Carolina musicians have played in this process is an important link in the American roots music experience. This project is a rare collection of South Carolina roots music from an original source of musicians. There is no other collection like it. Features: Drink Small, Nick Hallman, Freddy Vanderford, Brotherhood Gospel Singers, John Fowler and more!!!
