Tri-Cities Community Lecture Series Washington’s Music Pioneers Richland, WashingtonThis coming Thursday, October 15 the Tri-Cities Community Lecture Series will be tackling the influences of three music artist giants and sons of Washington: Bing Crosby, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain on the business, technology and notoriety of Washington State.

Bing Crosby, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain: Their music belongs to us all
Washington state holds the unique position of being 'on the edge of the world' from both musical and geographic standpoints. This placement provided a rich breeding ground for three distinct and revolutionary artists who pushed artistic and technological limits to forge new musical and cultural territory.

In this one-of-a-kind presentation, musical journalist Amanda Wilde highlights unusual and universal themes and threads that weave three distinct artists with three groundbreaking musical eras: the 1930s, the 1960s and the 1990s. Along the way she will show how they have influenced the technology, business, and notoriety of Washington state.

The lecture will be held at the Richland Public Library located at 955 Northgate Drive Richland, Washington and will start at 7:00 until 8:30 in the evening. This event open to the public and it is free of charge.
