Casket, Shroud and Grave is authored by me, Thomas Grant Richardson.
I am a PhD candidate at Indiana University, in the department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology. I am currently based in Buffalo, New York and my dissertation focuses on the transnational relationship between American vernacular music and Canadian musicians.
My master’s thesis focused on African American old-time string-band music, largely built around fieldwork with The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
Other research topics of interest to me are: labor song, musical instruments, piedmont blues, public folklore and applied ethnomusicology, folklore and technology.
