Our Latest Issue: Celebrating the Soundtrack of Our State

In the Spring 2022 issue, we’re taking a journey through Florida’s rich, diverse and exciting musical legacy and the lasting influences that are still seen and felt today. Discover the origins and evolution of the famed Florida Folk Festival, which turns 70 this year, and learn about the strides rock and roll took at the hands of superstar Florida electric guitarists and the struggles of Black musicians to play their soul-stirring music in Jim Crow South.

You can find the popular “Heritage Kitchen” under a refreshed moniker, “A Taste of Florida,” and enjoy a variety of new sections, such as “Oral History” and “More Perfect Union.”

To receive a one-time complimentary issue, please email Membership Coordinator Mara Utterback at [email protected]
