Kinston Music Trail Breaks Ground

A new music park has broken ground in Kinston and will be the centerpiece for the eight county African American Music Trail.  Construction has started at the site, which is located on the corner of South Queen and Springhill streets.  When finished, the music park will feature a 12-foot high by 23-foot wide sculpture documenting famous local musicians such as Maceo and Melvin Parker.  Executive Director of the Kinston Community Council for the Arts Sandy Landis says the park will also have a place where musicians can perform impromptu shows.
