"Clawson's study is expertly researched and elegantly written. She reveals a rich, roots-oriented musical world in which tradition, memory, and authenticity operate on a variety of levels, from the longstanding legacy of Sacred Harp to the local traditions of places from Sand Mountain, Alabama to the city of Chicago." (David Grazian, University of Pennsylvania)"
