Long before Americans had Spotify or iTunes, before they had eight-track cassettes or phonographs, they had music. Music was part of worship and work, entertainment and politics. “Music and Meaning in Early America,” a special issue of Common-place offers new perspectives on music ranging from Shaker hymns to Negro jigs. Guest Editors Peter Leavenworth, Nikos Pappas, and Stephen Marini have collected some of the most exciting new work now appearing in American music history. They have also assembled a marvelous cache of resources for further reading and listening. So don’t wait -- point your browser to http://www.common-place.org and listen up!
