The season of “the scene”
COLUMBIA, Mo 4/30/15 (Photo Essay) — It’s the time of year music fills the air: birds emerging from the cold; outdoor concerts; a CoMo street fair; a troupe of traveling troubadours at a festival in Stephens Lake Park.
The celebratory sound of the Rose Music Hall unveiling a few days ago. Children singing at Earth Day. A crowd lining up at the Blue Note or The Bridge, for the latest band to hit town.
In honor of this Season of Joyful Noise and the traveling musicians who help make it happen, our music reviewer and editor Hilary Scott Gennaro (left) takes us on her first major journey of the new music year.
On the road to Texas with her hit new album Freight Train Love, Hilary and her band played venues around the state; took in the sights and sounds of South by Southwest (SXSW); landed a new manager; learned the amazing history of a Houston radio station repeatedly attacked by the Ku Klux Klan; and picked up new insights to share with Heart Beat readers about today’s ever-evolving music scene.
