Gavin J. Campbell <email@example.com>
All of my research and writing has focused on the intersection of music and the South. I am particularly interested in how Southerners debate and decide what music means within the context of their lives, and this has led me to write about a range of topics spanning classical to pop to folk. My current research centers on the Virginia composer John Powell (1882-1963) and the debate about creating an "American music" in the period from 1893-1930.
