African American Fife & Drum Music in TN

August 9, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm CDT

Join the TN Historical Society for a free, virtual discussion with musicologist John Shaw about these historic bands, which have served both as a rallying tool for political militancy and provided community music for funerals, picnics, parades, and dances.

The event is part of a series, “Tennessee Music 101: The History of TN Music.” Click here for more information and to register.

Humanities Tennessee is pleased to provide partial support for this series.
