Journey into American Heritage Music

a tumblr blog blog by Matthew Sabatella


Follow me down the rabbit hole (or just peek in once in a while) as we uncover the most interesting, strange, enlightening, beautiful, haunting, powerful, personal, universal, and just plain fun music from America's past. Experience traditional folk songs, fiddle tunes, old-time country, bluegrass, Appalachian music, ragtime, rural and urban blues, spirituals, railroad and cowboy songs, work songs, sea shanties, Old World ballads, hillbilly boogie, minstrel songs, and more. This is American heritage music.
