In recent years, Berklee has increasingly become a mecca for people who play bluegrass, cajun, country, blues, gospel, Western swing, and a host of music styles categorized as roots music. The trend is about to formally become a curriculum initiative, as Berklee prepares to launch its American Roots Music Program, with faculty member Matt Glaser as artistic director. Master fiddler and composer Mark O'Connor visits the college this December to help celebrate, giving master classes and performing with students, alumni, and faculty. "Gypsy Fantastic" is from his Live in New York recording.
