The meaning of music in the South from 1890 to 1925 reached far beyond the reverberations of concert halls and music festivals. Campbell examines the music of the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Colored Music Festival, and the Georgia Old-Time Fiddlers' Convention and its relationship to the struggles of the developing New South. Social interactions between races, classes, and cultures instilled a rivalry among musicians as they tried to make the New South their own.
