Matthew Sabatella writes a blog called American Heritage Music. It's written for anyone with an interest in music or the story of America. American heritage music is woven into the fabric of the United States. The popular music of today is part of a continuum that reaches back to Colonial America and stretches across the Atlantic Ocean to the Old World. Exploring this body of music can deepen one’s understanding and appreciation not just of music, but also of our story as Americans and the varied people who have lived our history.
