Synopsis

Traces an era when the music of ordinary citizens was recorded for the first time across America. It pieces together a story that's set in the late 1920s, when record company talent scouts toured America with a recording machine and captured the raw expression of an emerging culture, giving a voice to the poorest in the nation - and rise to such genres as blues, country, gospel, Hawaiian, Cajun and folk music.
