A mayor who loves music, Cedric Glover, wants to hear from musicians at town meeting at Barnwell Center on Wed, Aug 13, 6 pm

In a first-of-its-kind effort to get “Shreveport N Sync” with local musicians, Wed, Aug 13, from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Barnwell Center, Mayor Cedric B. Glover will host a Town Hall Meeting, says Gwen Campbell.

“As we begin to grow Shreveport with a new, dynamic and specialized approach to economic development, I want to hear the ideas, suggestions, concerns and vision of those whose careers, business or interest is in the area of music and entertainment,” says Mayor Glover. “This open dialogue will begin a conversation that’s needed in our City. We all will benefit.”

The Q and A session led by Mayor Glover will end with a Jam Session. Those who would like to bring instruments are welcome to take part.

“The talent pool in this region has always been tremendous,” says Brady Blade, Assistant Director of Economic Development. “The Mayor meeting with musicians representing all genres of music is exciting.” “We want to begin a unique partnership and a plan to expand the City’s support of Shreveport’s music community.”

Btw, this represents a change in time from the info I obtained last week , which said the event began at 4 pm. I've updated the earlier post.
