About the Author:

Robert A. Stebbins is a professor of Sociology at the University of Calgary. He is author of The Franco-Calgarians: French Language, Leisure, and Linguistic Lifestyle in an Anglophone City and Amateurs, Professionals, and Serious Leisure.


'A look into a world hitherto unexplored. Stebbins provides insight into why people sing barbershop, and why they stop singing it. He discusses its organizational structures and its appeal. He compares it to the worlds of jazz and classical music. And in so doing, he helps readers on all levels understand more about barbershop singing and barbershop singers.'
