It Still Moves: Lost Songs, Lost Highways, and the Search for the Next American Music by Amanda Petrusich
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From country to blues, jazz to soul, bluegrass to the more recent alternative takes on these genres, "It Still Moves" looks at the paths trodden and those to come. It seeks to explain how this melting pot of styles and influences all contribute to the rich and progressive sounds coming out of America today. Taking the highway - perhaps that most potent symbol of American freedom - as her starting point, the book is based on the author's personal journey. Warm, entertaining and insightful it is the first serious attempt to explain and celebrate the much maligned/misunderstood term 'Americana'. This title features Robert Johnson - Leadbelly - Elvis Presley - The Carter Family - Alan Lomax - Johnny Cash - Willie Nelson - Bill Monroe - Woody Guthrie - Bob Dylan - The Band - Wilco - Iron & Wine - Will Oldham - Devendra Banhart - Joanna Newsom, and many more.
