“Leadbelly–he’s the blues, right? The Grateful Dead–they are rock?” Well, yes, but not exactly. A songster collects music from multiple genres and adds them to create an extensive repertoire. We’ll examine the idea of the songster and see how it applies to The Grateful Dead and Huddie Leadbetter. “So, are The Dead the modern ones?” Scott Cashman, an anthropologist and former Tower Records manager, will discuss the music of these two crucial artists while considering the concept of the songster.

I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
