It’s not too soon to be thinking about summer employment for your teen. The Opportunity Now program is Nashville’s youth employment initiative, working to provide young people ages 14-24 access to employment. See flyer below for details.
I was thrilled to be able to recently help facilitate bringing an interactive Blues in the Schools program to Two Rivers Middle Prep. Shannon “Bayou” Williford is a Metro Parks employee and along with Bentley Caldwell and Casey “Grandpa” Lutton, performed for the students and led them in creating and performing their own song as well as teaching an understanding and appreciation of blues and its impact on our history and culture. Best yet, this is a free program for our schools with support from the Music Performance Trust Fund, Nashville Fringe Festival and Nashville Musicians AFM Local 257.”
