From Bluegrass to Broadway: A Film History of America's Popular Music

Implementation of a six-part series of public programs in collaboration with the American Library Association exploring American musical traditions in the 20th century to be held at 50 libraries

From Bluegrass to Broadway is a six-part public program of documentary film screenings, lectures, readings and scholar-led discussions on the following uniquely American musical traditions: blues and gospel, Broadway, jazz, bluegrass and country, rock, and mambo and hip hop. The program will initially be offered at 50 sites, geared primarily to audiences at public libraries; it will also be open to museums, music societies, performing arts centers and other community organizations. The project has assembled an outstanding panel of scholars, library programmers and Internet experts to advise, shape the program, contribute program materials, work with local scholars, and to implement an Internet strategy to reach a wider audience beyond the 50 local sites. The humanities disciplines among others represented in the project include American history and culture, music history, ethnic studies, folklore, and musicology.
