America

America implies The United States of America rather than South America or Canada.

America is known for its sheer size, being founded by English Settlers, Fighting for Independence, Immigration, Multiculturalism, Slavery, Civil War and of course much much more. Everything about America seems to be iconic.

In terms of Folk, it has given the world many genres of music (Country And Western, Bluegrass, Old-time, Ragtime, Jazz), several instruments (Banjo, Appalachian Dulcimer, Flat Back Mandolin), Dances (Square Dance, Jitterbug) and a number of songs as well as an unending supply of performers.
