Active Minds Lecture: Hillbilly Records & Early Country Music Has New Hours!

We will be accepting orders Tuesdays at 10am through Saturdays at 5pm 

You will still be able to browse books and add them to your shopping cart, but you will not be able to complete an order beginning at 5pm (MDT) on Saturdays, and until 10am on Tuesdays. 


In the early 20th century, American folk music was being influenced by a number of factors. Among them were music collectors and record companies, both of whom shaped the music in important, lasting ways. Join Active Minds as we explore this dynamic and learn about the commercialization of folk music and how this relates to the roots of country music. We will listen to and discuss music by the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Leadbelly and others, and describe how this also influenced later country music and folk revivals.
