Austin Music is excited to announce a virtual exhibits update launch for Local Memory: A History of Music in Austin on September 29, 2022. Visitors can discover new research on lesser known topics in Austin's musical history, such as local Swing and R&B bandleader Johnny Simmons and a 1931 performance by Bessie Smith. New narratives, images, and original artwork by renowned Austin artist Kerry Awn have been added.
The exhibits are free and online.
This event is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
