University Press of Mississippi

This chapter focuses on Richard Dyer-Bennet’s work as a teacher in a school of minstrelsy in Aspen, Colorado founded by Walter Paepcke. By 1947, Dyer-Bennet had assembled a staff that would help students improve their musical abilities, and had created the coursework for all students. The school existed only for three years, after which Dyer-Bennet was forced to resume his concert tours. The chapter provides a sample tour itinerary for 1950, which provides a glimpse of the destinations and frequency of Dyer-Bennet’s travels.
