Live music was playing throughout Tallahassee over the weekend. The area’s musicians and their fans are getting back into the swing of live performance in more traditional venues.
The Tallahassee Museum’s Swamp Stomp was back to a full house of spectators and performers, as combination musican/MC Del Suggs observed.
“It’s so great to be here at the Tallahassee Museum for the Swamp Stomp and nobody has to worry too much about social distancing. We’re outside, it’s a beautiful day and it’s so great to get all these great acts out here again.”
Meanwhile a few miles away at The Moon, a large crowd was enjoying the Second Annual Sankofa Festival, a hearty musical mashup of reggae, funk, soul and jazz. Tallahassee musicians had brought that same performance to Cuba a few years back before the pandemic.
