American Folk/Country

Let’s take a moment to briefly meet some of the many — many! — genres of American folk and country music:

The Bakersfield Sound: A California-born fusion of Honkytonk and Western Swing.

Bluegrass: Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and unbelievable banjo.

Boogie-Woogie: “‘Boogie woogie’ originated in Texas at the turn of the 20th century as a style of early blues piano playing called “fast Western”-but it really became popular in the 1930s and ’40s when it became the realm of mutli-instrumental performing ensembles and even big bands….”

Honkytonk: A hard-driving and, embodied by Hank Williams, “hard-living” form of country.

Nashville Sound: Y’all come down to the Grand Ole Opry….

Old-time: There’s nothing old-feeling abot “old-time” music.

Rockabilly: “In 1950s a new genre called “Rockabilly” enthusiastically fused hillbilly music with the electric instruments of rock ‘n roll….”

Skiffle: American folk makes its mark in the UK and returns as the roots of British rock ‘n’ roll.
