The Sounds of the South Award was founded by Devil Down Records, in partnership with the Music Maker Foundation.
The Sounds of the South Award is an undergraduate research award given to a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who wishes to record musicians within any genre of Southern music during a summer. At the end of the summer, the recipient will submit a summary of their project and a copy of their recordings to the Sounds of the South archive at the UNC Southern Folklife Collection.
