Springfield, Illinois – A new podcast from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum features conversations with legendary Illinois musicians and bands, and sometimes with the artists themselves.

The Sound State Podcast launched earlier this year at a museum in Springfield and accompanies an exhibition titled The World of Music in Illinois: The State of Sound. From Muddy Waters to Earth, Wind & Fire and Chance the Rapper, we share the work and contributions of artists from Illinois. Podcasts are another way for people to explore the history of Illinois music, museum officials said. Episodes currently available include discussions with REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath, and singer-songwriter Steve Goodman’s daughter, Rosana Goodman.

The new official gallery guide features dozens of photos of artifacts, including the Miles Davis red trumpet and the souvenir that John Prine brought to the stage to resolve concerns about the performance.

“This exhibit is full of sounds, photos, and stories that we want to share with as many people as possible,” said Christina Shut, executive director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. “Podcasts give people around the world the opportunity to hear them, but guides provide details that visitors cannot pick up on a single walk through the exhibition.”

The State of Sound exhibition runs until January 23, 2022.
