About this Item

Art Rosenbaum was a UGA professor of art who was also an avid country musician. This book was a product of his field research on traditional country musicians in North Georgia. Of special interest is the chapter on Howard Finster, the folk artist. Rosenbaum had championed Finster's art before this book, but here he also acknowledges Finster's musical importance.
