There are so many forms of music with deep American roots. Jazz, the Blues, Gospel and Country were all developed and perfected in the United States.
Mississippi is among a number of states that have made major contributions to the American music scene.
The Smithsonian Institute got together with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College to bring a unique exhibit to the Jefferson Davis campus. It's called New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music. The exhibit is in the school's Fine Arts building through September 28th.
MGCCC's Anita Johns says, "New Harmonies provides a fascinating, inspiring introduction to the American story of creativity."
