| Book Description: |
The chautauqua movement of 1874 to 1932 was a truly American phenomenon, providing education and entertainment for millions of people and employing thousands of musicians. This is the first book to trace the place of music in the movement from its inception through its decline. Drawing on the rich collections of ephemera left by several chautauqua bureaus, this study profiles several famous musicians and introduces the reader to lesser-known musical acts that travelled the chautauqua circuits.
