Here is my nod to my state of Wisconsin. Needs music, any cheeseheads interested?

A pretty good idea! Brings something special from here immediately in my mind.

Sounds like a great idea for a challenge

Great idea! I'm not entirely sure this fits exactly, but today I wandered into the McManus Art Gallery in Dundee because I had a bit of time to spare, specifically looking for ideas for this challenge. And in one case I found a stuffed pigeon by the name of Winkie, who had an interesting story to tell. And so, here is her story: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/7372

As @fuzzy noted, I've been rocking this theme. #manitobasongs will find them for you. A FAWM's worth so far.

Here is my contribution. It sings the praises of the wines grown in my adopted country: Catalunya.

I was involved in a whole project like this several years ago - check out Jason Mendelson's MetroSongs, a collection of songs each inspired by a station on the Washington DC Metro subway. Maybe a good model for other regions? I contributed a few songs to the project: https://www.metrosongs.org/metrosongs

@ohljazz i haven’t listen to them all yet but really loved all the ones I have listened to! While I never lived in DC, I used to make several trips a year to do work for various federal agencies and going to various meeting so spent a lot of time getting to know the metro! Cool concept and really well executed! I will continue my journey listening to the songs of other lines soon!

Well, this isn't about my home currently, but the hometown where my grandfather was born in New Brunswick, Canada. I found the lyrics in my great uncle's journal, and set them to music. I'll be performing up there in October!
