With the current epidemiological situation, it has become more difficult to share different aspects of American and Russian culture with the people of both countries. One of the goals of the American Center in Moscow is to share and discuss American culture with people in Russia. One of the ways to create a better mutual understanding between the United States and Russia is by exchanging different aspects of culture between the two countries. Since music is an integral part of any country’s culture, we will share with you an important genre of American music: traditional folk music.
Folk music is an essential part of American culture. Many folk songs feature vivid lyrics that tell stories of love, war, and hardship. The folk music of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Lenard Cohen, and others have become part of the American psyche. Many other musical genres evolved out of traditional folk music such as rock and roll, blues, and country music.
During this event Alexander Lee will present his video about the American folk singer and Knoxville native, Eli Fox. Eli is currently a student at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, studying music business. You will have a chance to ask questions about the folk music and Eli’s creative work after the premiere.
Led by Alexander Lee, American Center’s volunteer.
