This is a short trailer for "America's Music: From Plymouth Rock to Rock & Roll," a 90-minute multimedia stage show that celebrates the music of America. ​Since before the United States declared independence, songs, instruments, and musical styles were carried to the New World. As people from different backgrounds interacted with each other, unique new forms of music emerged that could only have been born in this nation of immigrants. Matthew Sabatella and the Rambling String Band take the audience on a journey that connects traditional folk songs, spirituals, work songs, fiddle tunes, Appalachian music, ragtime, blues, jazz, old-time country, bluegrass, and early rock and roll.
