In her new book "How Britain Got the Blues: Transmission and Reception of the Blues Style in the British Isles," Roberta Freund Schwartz, associate professor of historical musicology, analyzes how and why the blues became a fundamental part of English popular music in the '60s. Schwartz explores not only the influences on British blues and blues-rock performers, but also maps the transmission of blues records to England to the development of the British blues subculture. Recently, the book was awarded Best History in the Best Research in Recorded Blues, Rhythm and Blues or Soul Music category by the Association for Recorded Sound Collections.
