9780807157800: In Tune: Charley Patton, Jimmie Rodgers, and the Roots of American Music

Born into poverty in Mississippi at the close of the nineteenth century, Charley Patton and Jimmie Rodgers established themselves among the most influential musicians of their era. In Tune tells the story of the parallel careers of these two pioneering recording artists -- one white, one black -- who moved beyond their humble origins to change the face of American music.

At a time when segregation formed impassable lines of demarcation in most areas of southern life, music transcended racial boundaries. Jimmie Rodgers and Charley Patton drew inspiration from musical traditions on both sides of the racial divide, and their songs about hard lives, raising hell, and the hope of better days ahead spoke to white and black audiences alike. Their music reflected the era in which they lived but evoked a range of timeless human emotions. As the invention of the phonograph disseminated traditional forms of music to a wider audience, Jimmie Rodgers gained fame as the "Father of Country Music," while Patton's work eventually earned him the title "King of the Delta Blues."

Patton and Rodgers both died young, leaving behind a relatively small number of recordings. Though neither remains well known to mainstream audiences, the impact of their contributions echoes in the songs of today. The first book to compare the careers of these two musicians, In Tune is a vital addition to the history of American music.

About the Author:

A native of Florence, Mississippi, Ben Wynne earned his doctorate degree in history from the University of Mississippi. He currently teaches at the University of North Georgia and has written several works related to southern history.

Review:

"Ben Wynne is clearly 'in tune' from the first page to the last of this brilliantly conceived, beautifully written, and often moving account of two remarkably creative performers of different races who drew on their otherwise comparable circumstances to produce what was 'not black or white music, but American music,' a legacy, that as Wynne shows, was simply too powerful, even for the formidable racial barriers of their era to 'soften or mute.'" - James C. Cobb, author of The South and America since World War II

(James C. Cobb)

"Ben Wynne strums a down and dirty blues in his new book, which takes us from the barrelhouses of the Delta to the opry houses of the southern hill country to the origins of rock and roll. In Tune tells not only the story of Patton and Rodgers, the original midnight ramblers; it takes a subtle and sophisticated look at how America's obsession with race has profoundly shaped the culture. This is a masterpiece of historical scholarship and great storytelling." - W. Scott Poole, author of Monsters in America and Vampira

(W. Scott Poole)
