Houston's Music History Series

This series, now moving back into production, is the ultimate in bringing back memories of our personal pasts and those of our parents and grandparents. Each video in the series documents a different genre of music and explores the rich social history that goes with it. Music of the 1960s, Houston Country, Houston Tejano, The Music of Jim Crow and Dancing Houston each combine interviews with artists and audience to tell unforgettable stories.More than paying tribute to great music, each title in the series also tells the tale of the social change that was often brought about through these artists and their audiences. It includes stories of integration, spreading diversity and the coming of age of a community.

We welcome your input and are especially interested in acquiring digital images related to local music history.

We will also be working on creative fundraising ideas for this one, so feel free to give us your thoughts on that, too
