What is Americana Music?
Americana is contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. While acoustic instruments are often present and vital, Americana also often uses a full electric band  
What is Americana Music?​
 Defined in part by Wikipedia: "Americana is an amalgam of roots musics formed by he confluence of the shared and varied traditions that make up the American music ethos; specifically those sounds that are merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm & blues, rock & roll and other external influential styles such as bluegrass".
