F343B – Music Americana: Roots & Acoustic Music

3:00 pm
777 Glades RD, Bldg. 31C Boca Raton, FL 33431 United States

ÊDrawing on basic forms of music in their communities, artists celebrate their times in song. From the sincere yearning of Ben E King’s “Stand By Me” to the heartfelt wisdom of Dolly Parton; from the raw commentary of Buffy Sainte-Marie to the smooth pickin’ of Chet Atkins, from the deep blues of Muddy Waters to the heartland sound of The Band, these artists showed the way forward for modern roots music. This course will examine the work, biographies, and enduring importance of these musical artists and attempt to sort myth from reality, using updated videos and excerpts from feature films, live performances, and a few surprises.
