Art enthusiasts and music lovers throughout the central Ohio region came out to the westside on April 15 to experience good art and great tunes at the Hilltop Spring Jamboree. Presented by Music Columbus in partnership with the Hilltop Arts Collective and We Amplify Voices, the festive event featured half-a-dozen musical acts, an instrument “petting zoo” where individuals could learn a new instrument courtesy of Music Loves Ohio and Music Go Round, and create-your-own art opportunities for beginners and experts alike. Pictured here during a set for The Real is lead vocalist Ariadne Francis. In addition to The Real, the Hilltop Spring Jamboree also featured performances from blucone, Dom Deshawn, Parker Louis, and Use Your Ears.
