Earlier in the week we were pleased hear, for the first time, Starlett Brown. She performed as one of the acts for the Women in Music event at the Community Folk Art Center.

Burnell Reid urges call and response at Juneteenth.

Burnell Reid & United Praise opened up for the headliner (Frank McComb) at Juneteenth on Saturday and took the crowd to church.  The group is made up of members for more than a dozen Syracuse-area churches. Reid also gave a shout out to Record Store SoundGarden and Councilor Khalid Bey (who helped negotiate saving the Syracuse location).
