Religious music in the Southern Appalachians covers a wide panorama. At one extreme, fundamentalist Baptists regard any music as the "devil's work," while at the other the Holiness church favors hard driving, rhythmic music. Focuses on the Holiness church experience, with its exuberant preaching and singing.
