American Roots Music

2 Video CDs

Originally broadcast for PBS, AMERICAN ROOTS MUSIC is a four-hour documentary about the evolution of the United States' unique musical heritage that is divided into four different parts. The program explores the myriad of different overlapping indigenous musical genres, including folk, gospel, blues, country, bluegrass, Cajun, tejano, and even zydeco. Featured musical performers are legends including Bob Dylan, Mahalia Jackson, Muddy Waters, Woody Guthrie, Bessie Smith, and several others.

Episode One-Musical historians relate stories of the popular artists of the day that broke new ground, such as the Fisk Jubilee Singers. This black chorus took familiar slave and church tunes and made it a popular form of music for the first time, even singing for Queen Victoria. The first recorded music is given a large section, with historic recording snippets of country, blues, and the beginnings of the Grand Ole Opry on radio with highlights of Jimmie Rodgers and the early recordings of the Carter family. Bonnie Raitt, Keb Mo, Doc Watson, Arlo Guthrie, Rufus Thomas and other notables provide commentary.

Episode Two-This second one hour episode delves deeply into the roots of the blues, with featured performers such as Howlin' Wolf, Lead Belly, Muddy Waters and BB King. Country and folk music roots and blue grass are explored with segments on Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs. Commentary is provided by Earl Scruggs, Marty Stuart, BB(Blues Boy) King, Sam Phillips, Kitty Wells, and Merle Haggard.

Episode Three explores the folk movement of the early sixties, with performances captured of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Kingston Trio and The Weavers. Chicago Blues by Muddy Waters and BB King are thoroughly covered, as well as the "Golden Age of Gospel, with Mahalia Jackson and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The Tharpe segment is especially intriguing. Besides being a fantastic singer, Sister Rosetta also played a mean electric guitar, in a time when women just didn't do such things. She also sang her gospel songs in nightclubs; frowned on by the church. The side ends with Dylan's electric set and its impact at the Newport Folk Festival. Interviews and commentary are provided by Pete Seeger (he wanted to unplug Dylan), Mavis Staples, James Cotton, BB King and Peter Yarrow.

Episode Four concentrates on the emergence of Native American music, Cajun music of Louisiana and its origins, Tex-Mex music and also raps up the current state of American Roots Music movement and its different elements as it has evolved. Commentary is provided by Edwin Hawkins, Robbie Robertson, Marc and Ann Savoy, and Ricky Skaggs. Musical extras on disc two include: Sister Rosetta Tharpe (Down By The Riverside), Steve Riley and The Mamou Playboys (Ossun Two-Step) and Valerio Longoria (Rosalito).
