Personal Quote:

[on studying the minstrelsy genre in 1820s and '30s America] It had such a gargantuan effect on American culture, world culture. This was the first time that tunes were written down. I've been going at it from a musicology point-of-view, rather than looking at its blackface and running screaming from the room.


Member of several bands and vocal groups, including Carolina Chocolate Drops (black string band), Eleganza (operatic duets), and Snapdragon (Celtic).
