During the year and a half of production for the American Roots Music series, countless valuable interviews were filmed, including sessions with living legends, leading scholars, and industry pioneers.

Oral Histories culls some of this information into a rich library of insight into the music and lives of the players by featuring complete transcripts of these interviews.

Much of the text from these interviews is published here exclusively for the first time. The nature of television allowed only small portions of the interviews - often hours long - to be included in the American Roots Music series.
