American music 800x600

The American Music Listening Group is a small, informal group of academics, students and other interested parties associated with The University of Nottingham’s Department of American and Canadian Studies and the Centre for Research in Race and Rights. The group meets regularly to play and discuss music of any and every type that has a connection to American culture. No one among us is a trained musicologist or competent musician! We just enjoy listening to and sharing our impressions and ideas about music. Please come and join us.

For this first session, C3R postdoctoral co-director Hannah Durkin plays and discusses the slave spirituals and international protest songs of African American singer Paul Robeson to mark the 40th anniversary of his death.

No registration necessary, all welcome to show up.
