Songcatchers: In Search of the World's Music

Books » Adult » Contributing Writer

A joint project with legendary Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, Songcatchers begins at the beginning with the earliest human delight in music, then traces its development through all its iterations, from African drums to Georgian chants to the new music of today. But the real story behind the story of music is that of the songcatchers, people like Hart himself who went in search of the world’s music.
