Country music is all about the…music! For this project, please find a recording of a country music concert of your choice. This could be from any time period but try to find one that was recorded live and is available in its entirety. Ideally we’d be watching LIVE country music, but since that is no feasible at the moment, this is the next best thing. In essay format, please give your reaction to the concert and specifically address how your experience relates to the course modules so far. For example,
What region of the country did this music come from? What sub-genre of country music might it fit into? What instruments were used? Where did those instruments originate?
Can you hear the influence of any other genres on what you’re listening to? Etc…Please cite course readings in your essay and tie it back to what you’ve learning so far in the course. This should be 1000 to 1500 words. Midterm Project: (100 points)
