Bal­ti­more’s mu­si­cal roots from Billy Hol­i­day to Frank Zappa and Thomas Dolby

When peo­ple think of mu­si­cal towns, Nashville ranks high on the list. As the home of South by South­west, Austin is up there, too. But Bal­ti­more’s melodic roots go just as deep. Af­ter all, Charm City has launched such di­verse tal­ents as blues songstress Billy Hol­i­day and rock star Frank Zappa, both of whom were born here. At Johns Hop­kins, ’80s synth-pop mu­si­cian Thomas Dolby teaches a course on film scor­ing for as­pir­ing cin­e­matic com­posers. And across town, con­cert halls, cafés and shops in­spire toe tap­ping to clas­si­cal, ex­per­i­men­tal and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. For my full Bal­ti­more itin­er­ary, go to where­trav­eler.com.
