Something like Aaron Copland (I know his stuff is not public domain).
I wonder if there is anything in public domain.

Also, if anyone is aware of some good Americana genre music that I would have to buy somewhere else, I'm interested.

What is Americana music..? Can you tell me some info?

Default Americana

i've been listening to a lot of Gus Black here lately. He has a new album coming out on the 21st of this month called Autumn Days. it's sooo good!! i really like it! it kinda reminds me of some Ryan Adams/Whiskey Town type stuff!
he's actually had a number of his songs on a bunch of popular tv shows like One Tree Hill, Smallville, Alias, etc...oh, and he did a cover of "don't fear the Reaper" which was on the original Scream Soundtrack!!
you may have heard him somewhere along the way & may not have known who it was!! anyway - here's a link to his myspace page where you can check out some of his music if you'd like!!

http://www.universalbuzz.com/gusblack

check it out and let me know what you think!!

Default American Music Define

[FONT=Tahoma][SIZE=2]Americana music is a the official State Music of Texas. Sadly, the Nashville studios what merely pure ethnic music, or Crying, Dying and getting Drunk music. My contemporaries of the classical tradition either fail to have a life, or they feel they can't admit it. Americana is a synthesis of the influences of Coplands rag (Maple leaf rag), the Folk music traditions of the 60's and 70's, and the best songwriting skills lyrically you can ever hope to hear. Instrumentally, it reverts back to the long-bow origins typical of the Northerlands of Scotland, and infuses slides (Blues notes) and tonic,(not the sloppy scrath of bluegrass) double stops. Its borne out of the skills of improvisation, aural proficiency, and chordal and key progression theory, simply stated its not easy. But its recent statements of historical genres of music originating in America, ergo the "a" for Americana.

How rude. Why waste your time posting in a classical music discussion board?

Humblest apologies, I've just realised how snippy I sound! I was simply surprised at classical musicians being bagged on a classical music website. I guess I must have misunderstood something.
sorry
Sue
