The Roots of Muscogee (Creek) Hymns: A Cultural Blending
Monday, July 27, 7:00 p.m.
Dr. Hugh Foley, music historian and professor, has studied the origins of Creek hymn singing. In his book, “Oklahoma Music Guide,” he writes that the Muscogee hymn tradition is “a model for cultural diffusion influence, adaptation, and re-appropriation, evolving into what very well could be the first American music that embraces the three major cultures of the nascent United States: the Anglo-Scot European, the African, and the American Indian.”
Join us to learn about this fascinating history and hear examples of the music created by the blending of these three cultures.
