History of Rock and Roll
This site explores the roots of rock. It follows the natural progression of styles beginning with the African musical traits brought here in 1619. These musical traditions were then fused with the European music of the colonists. It is also a story of American popular music that includes the plantation songs of Stephen Foster, the ragtime of Scott Joplin, and was followed by the blues, jazz, and jump bands.
