Congratulations to 2023 Winner Steve Watson! Another congrats is in order for the winners of the new Linda Rodney Impact Award, SC Venue Crises! GMP is proud to sponsor of the annual Linda Rodney Award for Music Excellence. The award is presented to a local musician on on the Furman Jazz & Blues Stage of Fall for Greenville each year.

The gmp mobile education display

Our mobile exhibit is currently on display at Christ Church Episcopal School. The exhibit made its debut at the Greenville County Fine Arts Center in 2023. This six-panel display uses core genres to explore key performers, songs, labels, studios, radio stations, and venues that emerged throughout Greenville's history. Like most of GMP's archive, this display focuses on highlights from Greenville's beginning (c. 1820s) to the end of the 20th century. This exhibit will travel to schools and other locations all over Greenville County for years to come, If you would like to help us sustain this exhibit, please click the link below.
