Synopsis: At a time when Acid Rock and Heavy Metal dominated popular music, The Band rebelled against the rebellion with tight ensemble arrangements, masterful musicianship, impressionable lead vocals, earthened harmonies, highly literate lyrics, and a respect for the musical traditions of the American South. Comprised of Canadians Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson, and Arkansas-born Levon Helm, The Band sparked a new appreciation for America's musical roots, fusing R&B, jump blues, country, folk, boogie-woogie, swing, Cajun, New Orleans-style jazz, and rock, and setting the foundations for the Americana that would take hold 30 years later. The Band: Pioneers of Americana Music explores the diverse influences on the quintet's music, and the impact that their music had in turn on contemporary music and American society. Through previously unpublished interviews with Robbie Robertson, Eric Andersen, Pete Seeger, and the late Rick Danko, as well as numerous other sources, Craig Harris surveys The Band's musical journey from sidemen for, among others, Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan to rock legendry in their own right. The Band: Pioneers of Americana Music touches on the evolution of rock and roll, the electrifying of folk music, unionism, the Civil Rights Movement, changes in radio formatting, shifting perceptions of the American south, and the commercializing of the counter-culture, as well as drug dependency, alcoholism, suicide, greed, and the struggle against cancer.Harris takes readers from The Band's ground-breaking albums,  "Music from Big Pink" and "The Band,"  through their final releases and solo recordings, as well as their historic appearances at Woodstock, the Isle of Wight Festival (with Dylan), Watkins Glen (with the Allman Brothers Band and the Grateful Dead), and the Last Waltz (with an all-star cast). Sixteen previously unpublished photographs, by the author, are included. "This book sets the record straight about The Band," he said, "who they were and how they changed modern society."  
 

About the Author: Insatiable passion for music has been expressed for more than four decades by author, photographer, educator, and percussionist, Craig Harris. Writing about music (and photographing musicians) since 1971, his work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, and websites. Author of The New Folk Music (White Cliffs Media) and The Heartbeat, Warble, and Electric Powwow: Native America's Musical Tapestry (forthcoming), he was a major contributor to Music Hound Folk Music: Essential Album Guide and Music Hound World Music: Essential Album Guide (Viking Ink). Playing drums and hand percussion since his preteens, he has appeared in concert and/or recordings with Rod MacDonald, CJ Chenier, Jonathan Edwards, Greg Brown, the Fast Folk Music Revue, Gaea Star Band, and the late Merl Saunders and Rick Danko (The Band). He currently performs with Western Massachusetts-based Stillbridge. A skilled auteur, Harris has served as staff photographer of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, since its inception, in 1988, and his photographs have exhibited throughout New England. Possessing a master's degree in education, he taught music in public and charter schools for a quarter of a century before launching his award-winning, multicultural, and participatory Drum Away the Blues program.
