America tells its stories through song. Consolation to the
lovelorn, courage to the oppressed, warning to the naive, or a
ticket to the Promised Land, a great song can deliver the wisdom of
ages directly to our souls. We Are the Music Makers!
presents black-and-white portraits of artists who carry these songs
from past to present: fathers and mothers, uncles and aunts,
daughters and sons, grandparents and neighbors, who continue to
lovingly stir the South's musical stew and feed American culture
outside the realm of conventional fame and fortune. Newly available
in paperback, this book features intimate photographs that will
make you look more closely at the unrecognized greatness that
surrounds us all.
