Author David Lee Zimmerman illustrates in his book Americana Music, the genre of Americana covers a gamut of sounds and styles. Zimmerman says, “It’s a sound that reflects its traditions, its dichotomy as the sound of people sharing their hopes, their dreams and their values.” As a former promotions representative for ABC and Capitol Records, Zimmerman took the opportunity to interview a vast array of Americana artists. He will present his understanding of this musical genre, tell of his encounters with influential musical artists and read excerpts from his book, Americana Music.
