Roots

Roots rock is rock music that looks back to rock’s origins in folk, blues and country music. It is particularly associated with the creation of hybrid subgenres from the later 1960s including country rock and Southern rock, which have been seen as responses to the perceived excesses of dominant psychedelic and developing progressive rock. Roots rock is sometimes used in a broad sense to describe any rock music that incorporates elements of this music, because of the ties to Folk and Americana.
