    I had missed your photos somehow, and just found them. Greatness, it's the America I remember from my youth.

    You guys would complain and argue over which is better - a Bagpipe or Accordion Zydeco band.

    Americana is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as a genre of music having its roots in the early folk music of America.
    Where America is defined as:
    1 either continent (North America or South America) of the western hemisphere
    2 or the Americas \ the lands of the western hemisphere including North, Central, and South America and the West Indies
    3 United States of America

    Dictionary definition is one thing, how people perceive and use the word is another.
    "Americana" conjures images in my mind that are unrelated to the North/South American continent, and have everything to do with the specific culture of the US, at a particular point in time. My version of it encompasses 1935-1975.
    And as you said, the term also loosely defines a broad range of music that is still being written and performed to this day, having evolved from several branches of American country music.
    Canadiana or Mexicana might be somehow related, but neither term carries the weight of the original. For me, at least.

    Love the roadside tourist stops. Unfortunately this caught fire several years ago and is now gone.
