Program Description

Where did our music of today come from? In “Before Rock ’n’ Roll, Ainslie helps students explore the music that came before today’s Rock ‘n’ Roll. With interactive call & response singing and syncopated hand-clapping, Scott presents a fast-moving tour of many of the songs students encounter in their music classes: early spirituals, work songs, Ragtime and Delta Blues. Playing his fretless gourd banjo, one-string diddley bow, acoustic and slide guitars, Scott encourages appropriate movement and makes the learning fun. Peppered with humor and stories, Scott’s teaching concerts are tailored to grade level to help students listen for the influences of the music they hear today all around them. His Teacher’s Study Guides are filled with related classroom activities, background, and history of the music and its African roots, as well as a list of resources for the classroom.

Across the Color Line: The African South – In this varied program featuring the calabash gourd banjo, diddley bow, and guitar, Ainslie tours the music of the American South where European and African musical traditions cross-pollinated to make the powerful hybrids that have long dominated popular music in our nation and, subsequently, the world. This is a tour-de-force in Southern musical traditions that exposes their roots from the Scots-Irish fiddle tunes of the Appalachians to the musical traditions of West Africa.
