Best musical tribute to Weedon Island: Scott Lee Through The Mangrove Tunnels

Scott Lee Through The Mangrove Tunnels

Lee, an Assistant Professor of Composition at the University of Florida School of Music grew up on a canal that leads out to Riviera Bay, which borders Weedon Island; he volunteered at the preserve in middle and high school, and led canoe trips with a naturalist in the summer for kids’ summer camps. Naturally, this multi-movement record picks up on all the natural beauty and (at times disturbing) history of the beloved park. scottleemusic.bandcamp.com
