Musician Robbie Robertson began his musical career early touring with headliners like Bob Dylan before he was 22 years old. Robbie credits summers spent with his Mohawk and Cayuga relatives for nurturing his love of music and stories, especially Hiawatha and the Peacemaker.
I remember when I graduated from high school and the epic summer after graduation. I will most definitely be aging myself here, but one of the things I remember most is the music my friends and I listened to. My best friend would burn CDs full of our favorites bands and songs. Some of them stayed all summer long, while others were the flavor of the week. One thing for sure is that I think of our adventures driving around the wonderfully hot city.
