Explore 200 years of the Ocean State's rich musical heritage during a one-hour guided tour of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame conducted by RIMHOF Archive Director Rick Bellaire. While taking in nearly six dozen exhibits in the museum, you will learn how Rhode Islanders have made major contributions to - and left indelible impressions on - just about every genre and style of music over the course of the last two centuries, from the first American-born hit songwriter to the founder of the Rhode Island Philharmonic, from the earliest days of Doo-Wop to the R&B Funk explosion of the 1970s, from big band jazz to the heights of the fusion movement, and everything in between! Q&A all along and the tour as well as at the end.
