The Center for the Study of Southern Culture and the Division of Outreach and Continuing Education are sponsoring the second annual Music of the South conference on the University of Mississippi's Oxford campus, June 2 & 3, 2006.
The program will explore the origins of Southern music, discover how each Southern region produced its own sound, and learn how Southern music influenced the rest of the nation. Guests will hear presentations by leading scholars, enjoy live music performances, and tour the Blues Archive at the J. D. Williams Library. Nick Spitzer, host and producer of NPR's American Routes radio program, will present the keynote address. We'll offer catfish and brass bands, premiere scholarship and a good time. Won't you join us?
