Stevens Point Wisconsin…named after the great George Stevens and home to Point Brewery. The trip to join some fellow musicians at the Elbow Room for a song swap was well worth it.
Simply displayed behind the bar there was a sign that said “No fancy drinks” and I could tell right when I walked in it was more of a joke than a rule. Great atmosphere mixes well with great talent.
Musician after musician came to play. From banjos, to trumpets, violins to washboards, my heart was filled with music from beginning to end. Music doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care if you are young or old, male or female, rich or not so rich, music is appreciated across ages, cultures, and classes. This swap was a perfect example of how the magic of music brings people together. People who otherwise might never cross paths but at the Elbow Room magic seekers unite.
