Pressestimmen"This collection of essays serves as a staring point for anyone interested in music that has developed within certain geographical areas of the United States, but clearly has its roots beyond American borders. There are five essays covering the musical traditions of Franco American, Irish American, Hispanic American, Native American, and Polka music. Each essay is written by a scholar in the field. While the authors approach their respective topics with unique writing styles, each essay provides an ample historical background as well as a contemporary overview of the musical traditions."-MultiCultural Review
