The fourteenth annual Music In The Round, presented by Short North Rotary on March 2nd 2019, brought over 300 people together to celebrate local singer/songwriters. This year’s musicians were Matt Munhall, Parker Louis, Fran Litterski and Jordan Kirk. Music in the Round is a unique concert format that originated in Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe and grew organically from the traditional jam session. The only rule: the artists must play songs they’ve written themselves, on the instruments on which they were written.
Music in the Round audiences get to hear the artists talk about their songwriting, particularly the stories and emotions surrounding the song’s creation. It’s a treat for music lovers featuring some of the most talented musicians Columbus has to offer.
This year’s concert proceeds benefited The Kirk Horn Music Fund – teaching kids at Boys & Girls Club how to write music and play instruments; the Rafiki AIDS orphanage outside of Nairobi, Kenya; and the Short North Rotary’s foundation.
