Despite all the cover acts and its heavy metal past, Tampa Bay is a wealth of original music, singer-songwriters, and people willing to share what they know.
The Homemade Music Symposium 2010 combines all of the above. It kicks off Wednesday night in Ybor with panel discussions, lectures, and live music through Sunday.
Visit the Artists and Writer's Group website for more info and the schedule.
If you're new to town or aren't acquainted with local music, this is the place to start.
