Matthew Sabatella with special guests Callie Hammond and Nick Mayfield

  • Pure Life Studios 206 Clark Street LaGrange, GA, 30240 United States (map)


Matthew Sabatella tells the story of music from Colonial America through the birth of rock and roll. With vocals, guitar, and banjo, he guides audiences on a journey that connects traditional folk songs, spirituals, Appalachian music, ragtime, blues, jazz, country, bluegrass, and early rock and roll. Audiences sing along to familiar favorites and come to understand how the music came to be. Since before the United States declared independence, songs, instruments, and musical styles were brought to the New World by British colonists, African slaves, and immigrants from other parts of the world. New songs and genres emerged from the encounters between these diverse people as well as the unique American experience itself. As America changed, grew, and pushed its boundaries, so did the music. This is American Heritage Music. This is your birthright. Own it.
