In partnership with the Oklahoma Historical Society, OKPOP Museum, Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and BancFirst, the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department have launched Rhythm & Routes, an interactive music trail on August 15.
Through the new, interactive website, music fans will now be able to explore the careers and accomplishments of their favorite Oklahoma artists and performance venues. Rhythm & Routes currently includes more than 1,000 photographs, 500 trivia questions and 200 songs for fans to browse, making Rhythm & Routes one of the most comprehensive digital collections of Oklahoma music history and memorabilia.
“Rhythm and Routes will provide both residents and visitors an opportunity to experience the rich musical heritage of the State of Oklahoma,” said Tava Maloy Sofsky, Director of the Oklahoma Film and Music Office.
Rhythm & Routes travel itineraries include maps and directions to locations of personal significance for each inductee, thereby creating tourism and marketing opportunities for communities.
Beginning in January 2016, OTRD will honor one additional musician or venue each month until the trail is complete.
