The Great Dan Emmett:|
Burnt Cork Artist Extraordinaire
Purchase | NCP Home
For Three Decades, Daniel Decatur Emmett was a headliner in musical theatre, the author of dozens of plays and hundreds of songs. His best known work is "Dixie," a song that pulled him into the polarizing debates and political correctness of these times. By the 1870's, his genre had been eclipsed by more sophisticated vaudeville entertainment, and his fame faded.
Mount Vernon, Ohio-born "Uncle Dan" Emmett's story unfolds here through manuscripts and essays never before published.
