Lecture on singing style at Sewanee, 3/24/08
I will be giving a lecture, "Beyond 'African Rhythm': Singing Style and the Africanization of North American Music" at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, on Monday, March 24, 2008, at 4:00 P.M. In part, this lecture will draw on my research into singing techniques among Sacred Harp and choral singers. I will also discuss examples by jazz, blues, and rock vocalists.
