Jug bands were a turn-of-the-20th-century American invention, popular for their mix of traditional and homemade instruments, and of course, their jug players.

While the genre is far less likely to be in the spotlight today, one Fort Wayne band is determined to keep the custom alive and well.

Whether it's acoustic, electronic or bass, the guitar is one of the most popular instruments of the modern age.  And since 1987, April has been the official month in which to celebrate it.

When WBOI's Julia Meek wanted to explore the passion for the instrument, she found that she didn't need to look very far.

This March marks the 30th anniversary of Music in Our Schools Month. While Fort Wayne has a great tradition of school music programs, tight budgets and other factors can make it difficult for teachers and students to keep the melodies coming.

The same vision for promoting all things roots music that led Jonny Commorato to turn the Brass Rail into a performance mecca for those musical styles with his business partner, Corey Rader, now has Commorato undertaking a brand new outlet for his passion, which he calls Country! Punx! Reggae! Creative Studios.

International Women's Day is held each year on March 8th to celebrate and encourage the achievements of women around the world.

It's a time for women of all ages to inspire--and be inspired--and here in Fort Wayne, festivities include a day of interactive artistic performances hosted by Creative Women of the World.

Back in 2012, Fort Wayne native DeAngelo Samuel took part in a collaborative music project called HipHop4theCity, writing and recording the chorus for the resulting song and music video.

The Embassy Theatre's "Down the Line" concert series returns this Friday, and by popular demand, they're changing it up, doubling down, and making it a full two-night, ten-band music festival featuring "Locals Doing Legends."

Featuring covers of classic rock, country, funk, new age, alternative music and more, "Down the Line 9" promises something for everyone, and Marketing Director Barb Richards says the unexpected is just what to expect.
