This is the 1st music history tour for Greater Cincinnati - a region just as rich with music heritage, maybe more so, then New Orleans, Memphis and more. One day, Cincinnati will awaken to the amazing history we have and will welcome the world to visit us in celebration and appreciation. The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, a non-profit, with a mission of celebrating and preserving our area's history is thrilled that the Cincinnati Heritage Program Tours through the Cincinnati Museum Center, has developed this tour!
To join the bus tour, which will include visits to former King Records, The Blue Wisp and Historic Herzog call (513) 287-7031 for reservations.
Please see below for more details on the Cincinnati Heritage Program Tour:
At King Records, hear how Cincinnati, in the 1940s and 1950s, was known for its recordings of country, bluegrass and soul music. Visit a state-of-the-art recording studio. View the site that was home to King Records and hear about the famous musicians who recorded there.
At historic E.T Herzog Recording Studios on Race Street, now the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, see the recording studio that once was filled with the music of Hank Williams, Patti Page and Rosemary Clooney. Currently, a photo exhibit, "Annie's Baby Had A Baby" is on display, which was a part of FOTOFOCUS. Herzog is also used for events and live recording sessions. It features a piano once played by Hank Williams.
