Perseverance & Passion

Perseverance & Passion

Harrisburg is home to an array of local musical talent. When it comes to the hip-hop and R&B scene, local artists find a void in being able to reach the people of the city with their original works. Sure, there’s the 717 Video Music Awards, a yearly local awards showcase that spotlights the musical talents of the local hip-hop and R&B artists in the Harrisburg area, but aside from that, there isn’t much exposure and support for these hardworking, dedicated artists who look at their musical passions as more than just a hobby, but as an actual way of life. r this reason, Harrisburg Magazine spoke to five local hip-hop and R&B artists and groups to get their thoughts on the music scene in Harrisburg and to hear their stories of how they started their music careers and developed the passions that they have for it.

Did You Know?

Old Shaky

Old Shaky

The Walnut Street Bridge has been a source of discussion for a large part of its 125-year existence. No one seems to know when it acquired the affectionate title of “Old Shaky,” but it may hark back to the days when trolley cars rattled across its metal spans between 1893 and 1936, allowing passengers to transit between the east and west shores of the Susquehanna River before it later became a walkway for pedestrians and bicyclists. Since 1996, it has been only a memory for those perambulators either on foot or pedaling between City Island and Wormleysburg.

In-Home Artist Spaces

Few things seem more romantic than the idea of an in-home studio – a place to create, a refuge from the world. Three area artists and a writer know that the creative life has its rigors, but the joy of stepping into a studio all your own makes the sacrifices worthwhile.

The Badlands, Crazy Horse, Wine and More... South Dakota

Is there another state richer with iconic, true blue American sights and spectacles than South Dakota? From Rushmore’s imposing granite noggins to the still-emerging magnificence of the Crazy Horse Memorial – and the desolate glory of the Badlands – South Dakota typifies this country’s outsized, go-big-or-go-home grandeur. But to focus only on the western side of the state, where those justifiably famous attractions reside, is to lose out on the gentler pleasures to the east. Instead, begin your tour in Sioux Falls, working west along I-90 – and following this guide to South Dakota’s Unmissable Top 10.
