Wayne County has always been home — and sometimes just a stopping place — for numerous musicians. These musicians are chronicled in The African-American Music Trails of Eastern North Carolina guidebook. The 128-page book charts a cultural journey through Wayne and seven other nearby counties, including Wilson, Edgecombe, Greene, Jones, Lenoir, Nash and Pitt. For the guidebook project, researchers interviewed more than 90 musical artists who have contributed to the world of the African-American-created sound, including jazz, R&B, blues and gospel. It also details information about events, museums and historical sites along the way. And there are more than 100 color photographs that document Eastern North Carolina's The African-American Music Trails of Eastern North Carolina highlight local, influential musicians who have made an impact and developed genres. 22 Historical NOTES story continues on page 23 Story by Becky Barclay Photos by Casey Mozingo
