In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey
by Jim Rooney
As witness to and participant in over half a century of music history, Rooney provides a sophisticated window into American vernacular music. A consummate storyteller (and songwriter), his tale moves from being a "Hayloft Jamboree" hillbilly singer, to managing Cambridge's Club 47, director of the Newport Folk Festival, producing records in Nashville, helping alternative country gain a foothold, more. His path intersects with Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Bill Monroe, Muddy Waters, Alison Krauss, others. 321 pp.
