Coffee & Conversations: Singer-Songwriter Terri Binion
December 11, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Orange County Regional History Center is hosting a curator talk with Jeremy Hileman, History Center assistant curator, and singer-song writer Terri Binion for a very special tour of the latest exhibition, Figurehead: Music & Mayhem in Orlando’s Underground. Figurehead tells the story of how the musical promotion company helped grow the local scene with a focus on underground rock music and the club circuit. Through Binion’s own experiences, the two will dive into themes throughout the exhibit and explore the experience of singer-songwriters in the Central Florida music scene.
Binion started writing songs in the California desert at the young age of 11. It wasn’t until she was grown and a resident of Orlando for more than 15 years that the Central Florida music scene began to burst open. From her first recording, which included industry veterans, Orlando supported Binion and her music as she went on to play venues including New York City’s The Bottom Line and Nashville’s sacred Ryman Auditorium. Through her journey, Binion discovered the gift and the power of a good song and the value of having her community back home in Orlando embrace her to this very day.
Admission is free, but registration is required. The exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Orange County Regional History Center.
