There are residents of the Harrisburg area who find it somewhat provincial. A short vacation to Philadelphia, Baltimore or New York is the antidote. David Black is not among them. “I grew up in Clarion, Pennsylvania,” he says. “It’s a beautiful area, but we had to drive to suburban Pittsburgh for professional sports, cultural events and even shopping. When we came to the Harrisburg region, we found that the area supplied all of our needs.”

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.

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.
