how would you describe “traditional american music”? i have heard so-called “traditional” greek music. also chinese, and native american. very beautiful and spiritual! traditional russian melodies: rich yet simple. traditional irish music: lilting and melodic.is there some form of american music that you would call “traditional”. representative of america in her earlier glory years? what kind of music is representative of that era? please give examples!
I bet that would be the music that came from our colony years, or the years that the Cowboys roamed the plains.So with that in mind:Home on the range, Jimmy cracked corn, yankee doodle, and here are some others that I found on the web.17th CenturyThe Bailiff’s Daughter of Islington Barbara Allen Blow, Ye Winds, Blow The Bold Pedlar and Robin Hood The Bold Soldier The Deceived Maid Edward Earl Brand The Farmer’s Curst Wife Fair Margaret and Sweet William (1) Fair Margaret and Sweet William (2) The Girl I Left Behind Me (1) The Girl I Left Behind Me (2) The Golden Vanity Greensleeves Johnie Scot Lavender’s Blue Lord Thomas and Fair Ellinor The Nightingale Mattie Groves Silkie (The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry) Sir Lionel Soldier, Soldier, Will You Marry Me?

ask.com/web?q=how+would+you+describe+%22traditional+american+music%22%3F+&qsrc=0&o=0since we are a melting pot, our music is too.I’d say the closest, most accurate way is to go back to the music of the Native Americans since they represent the original “Americana”

Woody Guthrie, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Elvis, The Carter Family, Hank Williams Sr, Bob Dylan.I could keep naming people, but that would take too long. Instead I’ll just tell you that I think Traditional American music are the songs and artists who contributed to shapeing our society in the early days.

I guess Jazz,Blues,Gospel,Country and Bluegrass all have american roots,peppered with something from an older and mostly forgotten time and place only to flourish in what is known as the melting pot for the age of the new arts.
