"It Just Makes Me Feel Good":
Rethinking the Work of Gospel Music
Dept of Religion & Culture
published: 2012 | Presentation | Weston, Ryan
"Gospel music has long been thought of as a music of the church, meant to draw listeners into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and the Christian god. This presentation examines the performance of gospel music outside the church, at four Canadian folk festivals, and explores the variety of ways in which audiences engage with and make sense of the music in this secular context."
