The Geography of Flowing Water- Water Music: American Music and Rivers - Dr. Kevin Anderson's Lunchtime Lecture

Water Music: American Music and Rivers

 American rivers have inspired a rich and varied response from a wide range of musicians. From blues, gospel, and folk music to jazz, pop, and rock, rivers are both common subjects and metaphors in American music, but these songs are a continuum from celebrations of flowing water and river life to dark tales of ship wrecks and murders. So join us for this exploration of river songs and water music. Everyone is invited to bring their top ten list to share and compare!
