American music has always been a melting pot, but has been increasingly harder for anyone growing up in America since the 1830s to not be influenced by "other" music styles, primarily due of the advent of the Industrial Age and the improved transportation systems that it fostered.

Various sorts of touring musical troupes, from minstrels to vaudeville, began using the nation's evolving railway network. Some began doing so during the early years, although the golden years occurred during the 1880s-1930s.

As technology progressed, a host of "playback machines", from player pianos, the photograph, radio, to television, exposed even more Americans to an even broader range of musical styles during the first-half of the 20th century.

You're right I wasn't broad enough in my thinking.
