2013 Induction Ceremony

Thanks to Brittany Wilkes, Official Event Photographer

The Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to celebrating, honoring, and preserving the legacy of Rhode Island musicians, educators and industry professional who have made significant contributions to the national and Rhode Island music scene. The Hall will carry out its mission through the annual election of inductees, creation of a museum of artist and music-related exhibits honoring inductees and commemorating the state's musical legacy, and an online music archive of information about and audio recordings by those involved in Rhode Island's past and present music scene.

In addition, the Hall is committed to continuing that legacy by developing programs and services aimed at promoting and strengthening Rhode island's current and future music scene and ensuring that music continues to play an important role in the lives of all Rhode Islanders.

Eventually there will be more than 100 permanent Hall of Fame displays in Pawtucket's Hope Artiste Village. RIMHOF continues to seek donations and corporate support to produce the permanent displays and to eventually add audio and interactive elements to enhance the visitor experience. Special thank yous goes out to Hope Artiste Village for donating the museum space and to graphic designer Kelly Convery for creating the RIMHOF logo.

As we enhance our website, be sure to read more about the Rhode Island Hall of Fame, our bylaws and organizational information, and ways you can volunteer.  While we are building a more robust music archive in terms of content and functionality, there is plenty there now of interest, including information about the earlier efforts that have merged into this initiative, so be sure to visit the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame Archive and a list of inductees from that earlier effort who were officially inducted into the current Hall with our first class in 2012.
