Country is based on song and dance melodies brought to America by early settlers from Europe, and is based on Anglo-Celtic folk musical traditions. This music has long been preserved in almost untouched form among the inhabitants of the highlands of the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina .
In their content, songs and ballads performed by country performers are close to the usual themes for rural folklore. The spirit of country art is also determined by the selection of stringed instruments, like guitar and mandolin.
From the very beginning, the fiddle “fiddle” – the main musical instrument of American farmers for several centuries gave a characteristic flavor to the sound of music.
