Writing a paper on Ska and need some interviews.
Hey, Ska People. I'm a student at a university in New York taking a course on the history of popular music. The subject of my research paper is Ska, in particular, changes in the genre and community between the UK and the US. Ethnographic fieldwork is a requirement for the paper so I was wondering if you would be willing to answer some questions, and maybe follow them up with further discussion? Demographic information would be helpful, but I understand if you're not comfortable sharing it here.
Thanks in advance, D
Age: (18-24) (25-34) (35-44) (45-54) (55-64)
Gender: However you identify.
Ethnicity: Again, however you identify
General location: (i.e. Northeast US, West Coast, Northern England, Scotland, etc.)
What was your first exposure to Ska music?
Do you classify Ska into subgeneres other than the First Wave, Second Wave, Third Wave classifications?
Were other related Genres(punk, reggae, swing revival) a gateway to discovering ska? Did you discover any other genres through listening to ska?
Have you been to live shows? Who was the first live act you saw? Could you describe the experience?
How would you describe the ska community? If you've been involved for a long time, have you noticed changes?
Again, thanks for any assistance!
