The annual BrownGrass Festival in Rabbit Hash, Ky., raises money for WNKU, fetes David Rhodes Brown's 50th anniversary as a pro musician AND features an excellent lineup of some of Greater Cincinnati's finest Roots music artists.
The city’s embracing of the Pride parade and festival is
reflective of the general public’s growing tolerance, something evident
in the eclecticism of the musical lineup. One genre still evolving in its tolerance of
homosexuality is Hip Hop; there’s yet to be an “out” Hip Hop star in the mainstream.
On the CityBeat stage at 2 p.m. you can catch a local duo that is hoping to be one of the first, Swaggz & Hollywood.
