Appalachian Music: Tangled Roots of Race, Class, Gender and Culture in an American Region
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

After completing this lesson, students will have a broad understanding of Appalachian music including who makes it, where it comes from, and what types of people enjoy and participate in it. By exploring a wide and inclusive range of Appalachian performers, students will also have a broader, more complicated understanding of Appalachian music. In addition to understanding Appalachian musical styles beyond stereotypes of banjos and “hillbillies,” students will also come to see the Appalachian region itself as more diverse, both in terms of the geography and industries throughout the region, but also the inhabitants themselves. At the conclusion of this lesson, students should understand that Appalachian music, much like the Appalachian region itself, is a complex hybrid of people and places, far more diverse than most stereotypes from the region allow.
