Dakota State University Professor Reinterprets Stephen Foster


"Oh! Susanna" was written over 160 years ago, but it remains instantly recognizable to just about any American. In a new CD released today, Madison musician Nathan Edwards reinterprets "Oh! Susanna" and seven other songs by the man often referred to as the "Father of American Music," Stephen Foster. Raised in Wisconsin, Nathan Edwards is currently assistant professor of audio technology in the digital arts and design program at Dakota State University.
