Description

Excerpt:

Celebrating deeply rooted as well as recently revived and constructed cultural connections between Scotland, Ulster, and Appalachia, Wayfaring Strangers: The Musical Voyage from Scotland and Ulster to Appalachia has sold remarkably well for a book published by a university press. Authors Fiona Ritchie and Doug Orr offer ebullient if at times romanticized interpretations of Appalachia’s indebtedness to one strain of the region’s diverse cultural heritage. Other significant regional influences discussed only briefly in the book include English, German, African American, and Native American cultures.
