Perspectives: Thomas Eldridge

"There is a kind of spirituality I find inside Madison. Since the first time I laid eyes on one of the murals, I feel that I've been chosen to tell its story. It's like a voice, one that I must serve.... Inside Madison will be a testament to the confined human spirit in all of its anger, confusion, hope... and beauty."

What is your Creative Spark? SoSco Duo of Scottsdale were inspired by an original arrangement of “She Moved Through the Fair,” a medieval Irish folk song. "The song has a haunting melody with lyrics that tell the story of a man and the woman he hopes to marry. Unfortunately, he ends up disappointed. Although it was originally written for voice, we believe the flute and guitar capture the melancholic beauty of the song. We present this to audiences to show how the music and stories of the past can still be relevant today."
