A smorgasbord of fantastic performances from students in the newly created American Roots Music program. The artistic validity of a wide range of American roots styles—including blues, gospel, folk, early country music, bluegrass, old-time, Western swing, polka, and Tex-Mex—is beyond dispute. This music is the lifeblood of America's cultural heritage. The expressive urgency and depth of these styles is supported by strong fundamental musical values, and it is in recognition of the richness of these idioms, and of the ways that they fuse with contemporary elements, that Berklee has created the American Roots Music Program.
