TL;DR -- We look at culture via music.
We will be more active in following events related to the National Heritage Months, this year. In the prior post, we listed three of these events and will be adding more to the list.
Our post in 2019 had a history focus. This year, we want to take a cultural view, dealing with music which is an important aspect of our lives. Though, we know that some of our ancestors, in New England, did not appreciate the value of music.
This is our first post like this. We will link to two youtube videos by people from different cultures of the same song, written by the first and covered by the second.
- Bruce Hornsby - His song, The way it is, won an award in 1988. He has a New England heritage that we will look into.
- Tupac Shakur - He was a musician and actor. His 'sample' of Hornsby's song was in Things'll never change in 1996.
