  • Description
  • Reviews
Sampling virtually all of the old-time styles within the musical traditions still extant in north Georgia, Folk Visions and Voices is a collection of eighty-two songs and instrumentals, enhanced by photographs, illustrations, biographical sketches of performers, and examples of their narratives, sermons, tales, and reminiscences.

The Rosenbaums have made a splendid contribution to our understanding of both southern culture and history.

Georgia Historical Quarterly

This book shows its editor in the roles of interviewer, interpreter of socialscientific data, annotator, discographer, and artist; he plays them all with great success. From the beginning of his artistic career, Rosenbaum has specialized in American folklife scenes. These paintings, depicting the lives and aspirations of the informants, give the collection an expressiveness we hardly meet in folksong books.

Ethnomusicology

An outstanding documentation of some strong and persistent traditions, prepared with understanding and deep respect for folk music and its performers.
