Welcome to H-Southern Music. For many observers, music represents one of the most identifiable characteristics of the American South. Indeed, there is little doubt that music has provided one of the region's greatest contributions to national and world culture. The primary purpose of H-Southern Music is to provide a forum for exploring and discussing the historical nature of those contributions.

Call for Music Journalists & Critics

I am a new member of the H-Net Southern Music discussion list and I wanted to formally introduce myself and my company, The History Press. We are a traditional publisher that focuses on local and regional history and culture books by local authors. We handle all aspects of the publishing process from financial, editorial, design, and production to sales, marketing, and distribution. We compensate our authors with royalties. We are not a vanity press, therefore we do not require financing for our publications.
