The music of Illinois is on display in Springfield at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in the “The State of Sound: A World of Music from Illinois” exhibit. I made the trip there to record a special episode of Car Con Carne from the studio created especially for the exhibit. Joining me in a deep dive into various aspects of the exhibit and Illinois music history is “The State of Sound” curator/old friend Lance Tawzer.
Back in the day, I knew Lance as a musician (The Lupins, Material Issue), but more recently he’s well-established for his outstanding museum work. He truly outdid himself with The State of Sound.
