Early downhome blues : a musical and cultural analysis by Jeff Todd Titon( Book )

27 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed as a classic in music studies when it was first published in 1977, Early Downhome Blues is a detailed look at traditional country blues artists and their work. A compact disk including nineteen outstanding examples of early blues music is included with this new edition." "Combining musical analysis and cultural history, Titon examines the origins of downhome blues in the African American tradition. He also explores what happened to the art form when the blues were commercially recorded and became part of the larger American culture. From forty-eight musical transcriptions, Titon derives a grammar of early downhome blues melody. His book is enriched with the recollections of blues performers, audience members, and those working in the recording industry." "In a new afterword, Titon reflects on the genesis of this book in the blues revival of the 1960s and the politics of tourism in the current revival under way."--Jacket

Old-time Kentucky fiddle tunes by Jeff Todd Titon( )

4 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For years fiddlers and folklorists have prized the old-time fiddle tunes from Kentucky. Many of the most outstanding country music artists hail from the state, including Ricky Skaggs and Bill Monroe, widely regarded as the founder of bluegrass music. Even Aaron Copland lifted, note for note, a Kentucky old-time fiddler's performance of "Bonaparte's Retreat" for the "Hoedown" section of his ballet Rodeo." "That tune and nearly 200 others are transcribed here, most for the first time, from Kentucky fiddlers' home, field-collected, and commercial recordings. These Kentucky source musicians, many of whom were born before 1900, were skilled practitioners of playing styles and tune repertoires that are now extremely rare. Living in a time of transition between the old-time music of the nineteenth century and the modern country music of the twentieth, these fiddlers preserved the older music even as they flirted with the newer tunes and styles."--Jacket

The Oxford handbook of applied ethnomusicology( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prés. de l'éd.: Applied studies scholarship has triggered a not-so-quiet revolution in the discipline of ethnomusicology. The current generation of applied ethnomusicologists has moved toward participatory action research, involving themselves in musical communities and working directly on their behalf. The essays in "The Oxford Handbook of Applied Ethnomusicology", edited by Svanibor Pettan and Jeff Todd Titon, theorize applied ethnomusicology, offer histories, and detail practical examples with the goal of stimulating further development in the field. The essays in the book, all newly commissioned for the volume, reflect scholarship and data gleaned from eleven countries by over twenty contributors. Themes and locations of the research discussed encompass all world continents. The authors present case studies encompassing multiple places; other that discuss circumstances within a geopolitical unit, either near or far. Many of the authors consider marginalized peoples and communities; others argue for participatory action research. All are united in their interest in overarching themes such as conflict, education, archives, and the status of indigenous peoples and immigrants
